Synopsis

Adrift between two cultures, Er Di is back in China after being expelled from the United States for working illegally. Once a hopeful stowaway on a quest for the American Dream, he now drifts aimlessly from one day to the next, even as he shares a tender romance with a member of a touring opera troupe. His life lacks meaning until he learns that his American-born son has been brought to China for a visit. Determined to see him, Er Di must overcome the boy’s family, who is determined to prevent a reunion. Soon Er Di realizes there are other measures of success than making it to America.
