About the film

Which story do you want to hear? The one I tell my parents…or the one I tell my friends?” In this moving and funny documentary 20 international students are propelled out of their comfort zones through theatre workshops and performances. By learning to tell their real stories they challenge and transform the narrative about Melbourne’s international student community.
