ABOUT THE FILM
Based on a personal essay by Chang-rae Lee published in The New Yorker, Coming Home Again is an intimate family drama about a mother, a son, and the burden of family expectations. Chang-rae, a first-generation Korean American, has returned to his family home in San Francisco to care for his ailing mother. He wants only to fulfill his role as the supportive son, but must also come to terms with his conflicted emotions towards his mother. The film takes place over the course of one full day depicting Chang-rae’s dilemma of living with the permanent scars of family sacrifice unresolved, or the risk of opening new wounds with his mother dying.
