A trio of Chinese exchange students, Tzu (James Chen, "The Walking Dead"), Wa (Keong Sim, "Dead To Me") and Chen (Leonardo Nam, The Fast and the Furious: Toyko Drift) arrive in New York City in 1980, eager for what America has to offer. They make friends including a literature teacher named Dexter (Ryan O'Nan, "Queen of the South") and his girlfriend Suzanne (Gillian Jacobs, "Community"). But as they try to adjust to the New York City atmosphere, they become disillusioned with America, eventually buying a firearm for self-defense in this critically acclaimed film directed by Shimon Dotan (Diamond Dogs) based on the novel by Luke Whisnant.

Press Quotes

Overall, the film rises above the usual trappings of low-budget productions and succeeds with a smart script and able performances from the cast of (mostly) unknowns, whether you're looking for sociopolitical commentary or just a small tale well told.

     —Paste Magazine

The film nicely captures the grad-student vibe: beer-fueled bull sessions about science, religion, probability and destiny... Leonardo Nam makes a sympathetic stranger in a strange land. Ms. Jacobs is also good as the doe-eyed, exasperating Suzanne.

     —Daniel M. Gold, The New York Times
