The Film

She's a straight-A student; he's trying to leave his gang life behind. A camcorder becomes both witness and confidante for these markedly singular yet utterly typical teens as they self-document the trials of growing up too fast and too soon in urban America. Filmmaker Spencer Nakasako deftly guides this video diary of a young Southeast Asian couple wrestling with the demands of parenting, love, dreams, and disillusionment in the nebulous cultural zone between first- and second-generation immigrant life.
