The paper identifies the lack of representation of the international student experience on screen and examines how Xin Yi is a film script that explores this subject matter. The analysis provides a survey of film and television that addresses similar topics and uses the theoretical framework of exilic filmmaking by Hamid Naficy. Xin Yi revolves around a Chinese mother-daughter relationship. The mother visits her daughter who studies in the U.S during Chinese New Year and reveals her divorce before she departs.
