The film follows a Chinese family who, when they discover their beloved Grandmother has only a short while left to live, decide to keep her in the dark and schedule an impromptu wedding to gather before she passes. Billi, feeling like a fish out of water in her home country, struggles with the family’s decision to hide the truth from her grandmother.

"It unearths the universality of complex familial love that defies borders and language barriers." - Tomris Laffly, Time Out

"The Farewell has some beautiful, truthful things to say about how love persists across the oceans." - Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"A bittersweet look at a young woman contending with her Chinese family's many generational conflicts." - Eric Kohn, indieWire
