CGiii Comment

Stacy: From a horrendous situation all the way to happiness...her story is an absolute inspiration. Those who oppose immigration ought to count their blessings...because, if the shoe was on the other foot?!?


Brandon: His default is to hide...a tremendously touching portrait of a successful, hard-working [gentle] man who just want to be who he is. he states that under Trump, America is becoming more and more like China...that's terrifying!

This intimate portrait documents her first months in Los Angeles, wrestling with the past and remaking her life in the US.
