About The Farewell 💬

In this tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, US-raised writer, Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai (Zhao Shuzhen), has been given mere weeks to live, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. To assure her happiness, they gather under the joyful guise of an expedited wedding, uniting family members scattered among new homes abroad.

As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there's a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother's wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken.

''There are things you must understand... you guys moved to the West long ago. You think one's life belongs to oneself. But that's the difference between the East and the West. In the East, a person's life is part of a whole. Family. Society. You want to tell Nai Nai the truth... because you're afraid to take responsibility for her. Because it's too big of a burden. If you tell her... then you don't have to feel guilty. We're not telling Nai Nai... because it's our duty to carry this emotional burden for her.''
