THE KID FROM THE BIG APPLE - MFFSG '17

Description

Chinese Title - 我来自纽约

Sarah, a 12-year girl was born & raised in New York City. As Sarah’s mother has to relocate to China for a few months on a work assignment, she has no choice but to turn to her estranged father back in Malaysia for help in looking after her daughter for these few months. To a contemporary youngster like Sarah, raised in the Big Apple since birth, Malaysia seems like all her worst nightmares come true.


To begin with, Sarah feels isolated & lonely in this strange, new place. Living in one of the group apartments with her grandfather, initially Sarah hides her insecurities underneath a cloak of bravado & treats her new neighbours as though they are truly beneath her. Influence from a group of friendly neighbours around her age & a period of time living under the same roof as her grandfather, slowly opens Sarah’s heart to the “strangers” she finds around her. The once ‘Stuck-up’ Sarah comes to learn & understand the reasons why her mother & grandfather care so much about their cultural traditions.
