SNAKEHEAD

Sister Tse comes from China to New York through a human smuggler known as a snakehead. She gains favor with the matriarch of the crime family and rises through the ranks quickly, but success is not the only reason she came to America. Soon, Tse must reconcile her personal success with her family ties and ask what she is willing to sacrifice to be here. Inspired by the true story of human smuggler Sister Ping, Evan Jackson Leong’s first narrative feature is an exciting story of survival and resilience set in the underworld of New York City’s Chinatown.
