Caramel

A Film by Shange Zhang

Synopsis

Caramel is a coming-of-age story about an 18-year-old teenager, Eric, who inadvertently discovers his mom’s immoral past — that she was a 90s adult film star — on the day before his grandfather’s funeral. Shocked and embarrassed, he does not know how to process the news, both internally with his own feelings, and externally as he deals with his schoolmates who crash the funeral. More importantly, his relationship with his mom seems forever changed — will he embrace her past and stand up for her?
