Jasmine is from Wuhan, originally… Abandoned as a baby in Hankou train station, she was adopted to a White British family and grew up in England. For Jasmine, Wuhan was just a word on a piece of paper until now. Suddenly, since the outbreak of COVID-19, everyone is talking about the place where she was born and she’s no longer able to ignore her past and those she left behind.
Wait I’m From Wuhan is the story of a Chinese adoptee struggling to decide whether or not to search for her birth family told via a series of Instagram and blog posts. Bombarded with images of masked faces and the deserted streets of Wuhan, Jasmine’s head fills with questions about her Chinese family. Is it too late for her to find them?
