In Manhattan, Eurasian acting student Julia Chamonix (Ha Phuong) is unable to enjoy the privileged life she shares with her doting father (Andrew McCarthy). Haunted by the tragic early death of her mother — a former star actress and singer in Vietnam — and likewise haunted by a secret desire she has to hide from the world, Julia struggles in her acting studies under renowned coach Igor (Richard Chamberlain).

Meanwhile, she begins to experience recurring nightmares in which she relives the car accident that killed her mother. Caught between two very different cultures, East and West, Julia questions if she will ever fit in anywhere.

Screenplay: Kieu Chinh, Andrew Craft, Minh Ngoc Nguyen

  • 2 stars "I took time out of my NYC trip to watch this and there’s so much I could say about the whole expirence but this is like a classic with its unsynced audio and iMovie video effects"
  • 1 star "Scientifically speaking, this is the worst movie ever made. In every single facet of everything, this movie is atrocious. This is a movie, shown in cinemas across the country, that has de-synced audio/video, filmed on what must be a 720p camcorder, and even uses in-camera audio. I cannot possibly begin to describe how unbelievable it is that this movie exists. It's some obscene vanity project by a millionaire who wants everyone to know how amazing she is so she paid, probably out of pocket, to have it receive a wide release, with no regard for how absurdly incompetent it is, on even the most basic of levels. Please god if you somehow see this review and Avengers isn't out yet go see it before it gets pulled, no one even knows this masterpiece of pure awful exists."
