Description

How do we discover what home means when we feel like we never fully fit in anywhere?
Eager to leave behind her suburban US life, Amy moves abroad to explore the world. But when sudden events force her to return, she navigates a more personal terrain, compelling her to reflect on her identities as an American, transracial adoptee, and woman of color, as she seeks to define what home really is.

“Ginther adeptly embraces her characters with heartfelt conviction, shifting the audience from empathy-laden sadness to laughter with ease.” – The Korea Herald
