Directed by Vicky Du
In this illuminating patchwork documentary, five queer and trans Asian Americans explore their relationships with their family and culture. Living an authentic life can be one of the most difficult things to do and these subjects offer a vibrant snapshot of how each has accomplished that, sharing their processes in doing so.
