"I found this film to be an engaging and honest look at the immigrant experience in the US. You won't be disappointed, the filmmaking is skillful and engrossing. Definitely a film that will open your eyes and keep you entertained at the same time."
Great movie about the struggle of trying to make it.

"Great movie about one man's struggle to make it.

You watch him wrestle with the ups and downs of having nothing--not even an ability to speak the language--and still fighting to help his family."
I love my ESL teacher
