Summary
"This strangely compelling love story follows Steven and Sandy--an aging white man with "yellow fever" and the young Chinese woman he finds online. Stereotypes unravel as they attempt to build a marriage from scratch and comic complications arise when Debbie, the Chinese American filmmaker documenting their story gets pulled in too deep. With constant twists and turns, this intense personal documentary explores immigration, interracial love, filmmaking, and ultimately marriage."--Container.
