About the Film



Based on a true story about a young boy and the entertainment he gets while wandering around the toy aisle.


Director Notes

As a 2nd generation immigrant from refugee parents, I had the interesting experience growing up in a Lao household, in a Canadian environment. This caused some interesting scenarios, from not being able to speak english in school, and have a lack of identity or true self. I didn't think of myself any different than those around me, but others saw me differently based on my physical appearance. These are some of the stories that taught me about who I am, and the way people perceive me.
