WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Feeling like outsiders since childhood, best friends Hailey Chen and Lillian Chin, have been planning their escape from their hometown in whitewashed suburbia to pursue lives of fame and fortune in the giant melting pot of New York City. But their plans for "living the high life" quickly disintegrate when their dream loft in Soho turns out to be a one bedroom in Flushing, and Lillian's native Chinese cousin unexpectedly tags along. As the girls attempt to fulfill their juvenile plans for success, their own differences become evident as they are forced to confront the dysphoria attached to their ethnic roots and explore their own prejudices concerning sexuality, self-identity, and issues of race and society as first generation Asian-Americans.
