These short documentaries depict the courage and determination of Asians who have struggled to build their HOME IN AMERICA. From three Japanese women marrying American servicemen after WWII and raising their families in a foreign culture; to a second generation Chinese American facing tragedy in her rural Mississippi town; to a young man who forgoes his family’s Chinatown store to run his own surfboard business in Boston. HOME IN AMERICA boldly deals with questions of assimilation and identity, of overcoming obstacles and not giving up.
