Storyline

This documentary reveals the impact of the model minority myth on the experiences and perspectives of Asian American college students. The myth is a complex and contradictory stereotype of Asian Americans as academic over-achievers. While many believe the stereotype is positive, it causes many problems. Asian Americans are overlooked for affirmative action and academic assistance. Tracked by parents, counselors, and social expectations to excel in math-intensive fields, despite their preferences, they struggle to balance personal goals and mental health.
