About this submission

As many other children of immigrants, I have often felt a disconnect between the culture and heritage of my family and that of the rest of my interactions in the United States. I wanted to explore this idea in a higher stakes form with my film. In it, the narrator is stuck between a few worlds, represented by a father in China, an immigrant mother, and his independent work in school, and he must attempt to balance the three. As such, I hope it can resonate with those who have had a similar cultural experience in this country.
