Synopsis

John Shed, a black American, lives precariously, at the margins of Silicon Valley, with his white girl friend, Belinda. His life is thrown out of balance when his half-Vietnamese daughter, Minh, arrives from a refugee camp in Thailand. Father and daughter begin a parallel search for belonging and identity amidst the salt ponds and tract homes of the south San Francisco Bay Area rarely seen in films.
