America is known as a melting pot of cultures, yet there are still ruling stereotypes that keep ethnic cultures from feeling like they truly belong. American Born Chinese is the story of three characters who find themselves trying to eradicate those stereotypes from their lives while realizing they must still keep a hint of who they are as they try to assimilate.
The characters find themselves in situations where, try as they might, those stereotypes keep them from living without the fear that others won’t look past the color of their skin.
Because of this they find they must help learn from each other to stay positive and to stay on track in living their lives as successfully and fully as they deserve.
