Based on a true story lived by the director of the film Lulu Wang. A scattered Chinese family has to face the imminent death of the grandmother due to a terminal lung cancer. Because of this, all the relatives decide not to tell the matriarch anything about her desease and organize a wedding in China to which all those who have had any kind of relationship with her are invited, so that they can say goodbye. Billi's parents (Awkwafina) do not want to attend because they are already settled in New York and without any relationship with their relatives, in addition to not wanting to participate in the deception. However, the young woman decides to take the trip on her own so as she can say a last goodbye to her grandmother and catch up with all her relatives, that she barely know because of the distance and the decisions of her parents. Despite the trip, Billi does not quite agree with the family's decision to hide the illness from his grandmother, since she does not believe in the traditions and superstitions of his peers. This conflict will constantly lead her to a myriad of situations that will put her on her emotional limit and on a conflict with herself about finally revealing the secret to her beloved grandmother or staying true to the promise she made to her family.

Trivia The Farewell

Director Lulu Wang tells the real story about her family. All of them lied to ther real grandmother about her terminal cancer, so she reflects herself in Awkwafina's character. Director didn't tell her grandmother that the movie was about her, and when she found out at the production party, Wang told her that the plot was about immigration and a wedding. This is the first A24 movie being rated as PG, after releasing R films like 'Hereditary' or 'Midsommar'.
