Abstract

The film addresses the problem of why it is challenging for Chinese

college students to study, socialize and succeed in American universities

and how language barriers, differences in family communication,

educational systems and socialization between the United States and

China contributes to the challenges that Chinese students are facing in the

The United States. Some of the problems that Chinese students encounter are

getting worse, leading to serious mental health problems or even

Chinese students committing suicide.
