A labor of love by a filmmaker who is himself a Korean immigrant adopted by American parents in the time following the Korean War, the film follows his earliest days in the United States. Suitable for children who may find themselves drawn to its simplistic and eye-catching animated sequences, the film nonetheless tackles some serious issues that will hit especially close to home with children or adults who are immigrants themselves. The protagonist - that is, the filmmaker in animated form - is forced to come to grips with prejudices, even from his own new parents.
