Storyline

In "Journey of a Paper Son," an elderly Chinese man, who's dying from cancer, shocks his family when he reveals that he's a "paper son" (one who immigrated to the U.S., using fake documents and claiming he was the son of an American citizen) and asks them for a final wish to change back his name. His request threatens to tear apart his family, testing the limits of their love. We discover that he's just one of countless "paper sons" who were born from the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the first federal law to restrict immigration to the U.S. based on race or nationality.
