While waiting to get picked up from school, two children realize that even though their parents are from different countries, their experience as first-generation Americans is very similar.

Where Are You From? is teaser for award winning, South Korean filmmaker Juhee So's next short film, Maelstrom. The teaser is meant to show potential backers on Kickstarter the themes that Maelstrom will explore if it gets funded. After talking to Juhee about Maelstrom during its pre-production, she asked if I wanted to edit one of the teasers as she really felt I understood the emotional pull of the story and could help bring that to the forefront of the narrative.
