"Compelling story of modern proletariat life."
Jason Anderson, EYE WEEKLY


Adrift between two cultures, Er Di is back in China after being expelled from the United States for working illegally. Once a hopeful stowaway on a quest for the American Dream, he now drifts aimlessly from one day to the next, even as he shares a tender romance with a member of a touring opera troupe. His life lacks meaning until he learns that his American-born son has been brought to China for a visit. Determined to see him, Er Di must overcome the boy’s family, who is determined to prevent a reunion. Soon Er Di realizes there are other measures of success than making it to America.
