This comedy-drama centers around eight Asian-American teenagers in Los Angeles on their last night together before high school graduation. Sin Lee, one of the teens, tells his friends that he lost $1500 of his dad’s money in a hold-up while working in his father's grocery store. Sin worries that once his parents discover missing money, he will be forced to work in his dad’s store instead of going off to college, but the group rallies together to recover the money.

The 40th Asian American International Film Festival runs from July 26 to August 5 with screenings at Asia Society and Cinema Village East.
The Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) premiered in the summer of 1978 in New York City answering a growing need for social understanding, cultural diversity in American life, and independent cinema. AAIFF is the first festival in the U.S. to showcase film and video work by artists of the Asian Diaspora. Forty years later, the AAIFF has grown to include films and video from more than 30 countries, a variety of topical panels and workshops, industry mixers, staged readings, exclusive interviews, receptions and more.
Presented with Asian CineVision, Cinema Village, and Flushing Town Hall.
