After realizing that her Asian mother had her at her current age of 25, Amanda learns she is the furthest thing from what her mom expected. Queer, Asian American, Impulsive Amanda explores her sexuality, promiscuity with males and female identifying folks, and tries using her voice more loudly to combat oppressive systems and the patriarchy. Being 25, Amanda is “finding herself”, but is hindered by the fact that she doesn’t feel able to share her authentic self with the person who matters the most – her mom. Friends, heartbreak, and therapy help Amanda realize that she fears losing her mother and how much that impacts all of her relationships. She tells herself she’s a hilarious badass bitch who doesn’t care about what her mother thinks, but in reality she’s walking on eggshells.
