Global streaming giant Netflix will premiere a new short doc about living one’s true identity in the face of traditional family values in All in My Family next month.

Director Hao Wu is the only male descendant in his Chinese family, raised with a specific vision of success: excel at school, get a good job, marry and have kids. Having attained all of that, he now faces the dilemma of how to announce that he’s a father. Wu is gay, and he hasn’t come out to his parents. In All in My Family, he chronicles his attempts to reconcile is modern family with his extended relations.

Wu serves as writer, director and producer of the 39-minute film.

All in My Family launches globally on Netflix May 3.
