"Insightful and bittersweet, the film provides a picture of an unexpected America through the eyes of a charmingly candid heroine."

A spunky Vietnamese teenager named Mai gets the chance of a lifetime—to study in the United States. She lands in rural Mississippi, a crazy quilt of self-proclaimed rednecks, cliquish teenagers, South Vietnamese exiles and transvestite soulmates. From cosmopolitan Hanoi to the heart of the Deep South, Mai's unforgettable journey offers an outsider's glimpse inside America.
