“Family,” a broadly defined term, is everything in our city. Many extended families live under the same roof, creating a distinct need for the phrase “single family home.” Featuring AUGUST, DRIFTING, IN FRANCE MICHELLE IS A MAN’S NAME, IN SUDDEN DARKNESS, and POND, each film in this block takes a look at “single family” dynamics and relationships of different sorts.

Runtime: 69 minutes

Yan is an illegal second child born during the One-Child policy. To avoid government punishment, Yan's parents hid their oldest daughter in the countryside and raised Yan as a girl. Now a young adult, Yan struggles with his gender identity and being treated as an outcast in a conservative society. His sole escape is drifting his father's old taxi through abandoned parking lots.
