Lao Tang, a kitchen worker in a Chinese takeout restaurant, recalls his experiences of being smuggled into the United States. Lao Tang’s daily routine is repetitive, routine, and endless; while on the other side of the globe, China, the land of his birth, experiences drastic changes that are bound to touch those, like him, that share the same ethnicity and situation.
