Migrating to a new country will require adapting to its culture this process is not instantaneous or common for all. This study aims to explore the lives of three Korean students and how they are able to integrate themselves into the new culture. The approach to documentary filmmaking includes footage shot by the subjects themselves. The proponents believe that such method will allow the viewers to see the story through the eyes of the participants. The documentary also explores how Korean communities help each other in dealing with practical affairs (Sicat), and how Koreans reach out to Filipino classmates and teachers in the process of adaptation, particularly in coping with the difficulties created by the language barrier, local culture, and academic work (Sicat). Interaction between two cultures help individuals adapt as well as experience a form of discontent from integration (Kuran and Sandholm).
