»I thought I was ashamed of my younger sister, but really, I was ashamed of being an immigrant.« says director Feng-I Fiona Roan and pours her heart and memories into her autobiographical coming of age story. Exploring the desperation, she felt when moving to America from Taiwan with her younger sister, an enemy and a rival in her eyes. JIEJIE (meaning »older sister«) is a confession, an act of love and an outreach at redemption.
