Character: May-Ling, exchange student

May is about to leave China and become an exchange student in Los Angeles. At LAX's parking lot she encounters a homeless man.
On the ride to their exchange family homes, the students discuss their hopes, only to have those crushed by the surroundings of South Central.
They are lost and scared. Only May is brave enough to ask for directions.
After some miscommunication, May finally arrives at her host family's home, only she is too afraid to get out of the van.
It appears there was a mistake and May is at the wrong house but the problem cannot be cleared for a few days so everyone makes best of the situation.
Tracy teaches May how to walk. Later May wakes up crying because she's not used to sirens.
