Plot Synopsis: Ah Na is an illegal immigrant in New York City who finds employment in a Chinese restaurant. Fleeing from the persecution of her native village in China, she discovers that more oppression awaits her in America. In a naive quest for the American Dream, Ah Na begins visiting Grand Central Station’s ‘Golden Palace’, where Caucasian men go to pick up immigrant women.
