Mai is impulsive, intelligent, independent and growing up fast.
As well as realising from a young age that her family are nursing deep wounds and secrets, she also has to navigate her dual identity as a second generation immigrant.
Having escaped war-torn Vietnam, her family's individual journeys and memories have left scars that Mai was too young to understand.
Embracing their silence, Mai's camera becomes a conduit through which her journey of discovery begins.
