Two students (Jian-Wa and Wago) in the Peoples Republic of China are forced to flee out of China after having taken part in a protest action for freedom (reference is made to the fights at Tiananmen Square in 1989). They come to America, and try to build up a new life. After a while, one of the brothers pursues a musical career while the other gets entangled in a criminal organisation.

I was in this movie!!!
17 January 2009 | by rach3275See all my reviews

I was an extra in this made for TV movie and I am wondering where I can find a copy of this? I was only 12 or 13 at the time, now I'm 26!!! This was my first acting experience! I am in a scene walking out of a cemetery. Where do I get a copy, I would love to see this. Apparently I need to have a full time lines of text in order to post this, I really am just looking for someone to respond on where I can find this movie. From what I remember about this movie, when I was an extra 16 years ago, is that Rebecca Gayheart was absolutely beautiful, back then she was know as the "noxema girl" I also knew her from my beloved Beverly Hills 90210 where she was Dylan's love interest for a few episodes. When I was the 12 year old extra in the movie, I was too nervous to ask for her autograph because I thought she might laugh at me. The next day my dad ran into her at our Norfolk International Airport and knowing I was too shy the day before to ask, he got her autograph and told her the story how I met her the day before and was too shy to talk to her. She gave my dad an autograph for me and then a few days later I saw her on a talk show and she made a shout out to her little sister, Rachel. I was so excited, because that of course is my name too!!! Where do I find the movie?

Does anyone know?!!!!
