My Life In China. A son and father rediscovering their roots
The father of filmmaker Kenneth Eng fled the Cultural Revolution in 1966. After risking his life to get to America, he started his family in Boston. But when his restaurant went bankrupt and Eng's mother got sick, he began to feel like he’d failed at the American Dream.
This documentary is a story of migration passed down from father to son, as they retrace the precarious steps he took in search of a better life. Ultimately asking the question, what does it mean to be both Chinese and American?
