World Premiere at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival, where it won both the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award and the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Best Ensemble Cast.

In 2008, during the last month of summer before high school begins, an impressionable 13-year-old Taiwanese American boy learns what his family can’t teach him: how to skate, how to flirt, and how to love your mom.

Easily one of the best, most seamless films I’ve seen on the experience of growing up online.”
