Bad Axe
A closely knit Asian-American family living in rural Michigan during the pandemic fights to keep their local restaurant and American dream alive. With rising racial tensions, the family must unite and find their voice as they reckon with backlash from a divided community, white supremacists, and intergenerational trauma from Cambodia’s killing fields.

From Fish to Moon
“From fish to moon” is a common expression in medieval Persian verse, meaning “from the depths to the heights”. In Pahokee, Florida, there is a grocery store, where those who work at the Thriftway arrive early, and stay all day roaming the aisles. One of these employees is Jean Voltaire.
