PLEASE TRANSLATE SHORT FILM
SYNOPSIS

Please Translate explores how language can act both as a barrier and an effective tool to help bridge the relationship between a Chinese immigrant mother, and her American-born daughter. In a film about sacrifice, hardships, and ultimately a mother’s love, Please Translate exemplifies that nothing –not even linguistic differences– can stand in the way of the special bond between mother and daughter. 

Directed by Kelsy Lua
