Synopsis

Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Gene Luen Yang, American Born Chinese tells the story of immigrant identity. Jin Wang is a surly teenager struggling with both home and school. The cultural gap between his parents' generation and his own is beginning to take shape and his home life is dominated by the tension he feels with his Chinese identity. Meanwhile, at a new high school, Jin is one of just three Asian students. Fitting in is always safer than standing out but here, Jin has no choice. Feeling his minority status at school, the classroom and hallway become their own burden for the teen. On the first day of the new school year, something changes. When Jin meets a foreign exchange student, he finds himself wrapped up in a mythical match-up between the Gods of Chinese mythology.
