Synopsis: Available May 26th Only!

Immigrant parents and first-generation kids battle over cultural traditions while undergoing assimilation to an adopted homeland. Mr. and Mrs. Choi own and operate Happy Cleaners, the family dry cleaning business. Mr. Choi has been working at the cleaners for seventeen years, and was fortunate enough to take over the business. They work diligently to support themselves and their children — of whom they have high hopes and aspirations. The family dry cleaning business – the very source of the family’s income as well as the symbol of all their hopes – is in jeopardy of loss, and the Choi Family members must react. Quickly.

We want to provide a snapshot of our collective Flushing, Queens, Korean-American experience, which the broader population might not know about.
