When a Chinese-American family travels from California to Mississippi to visit the grave of their ancestors, they stumble upon surprising revelations. Along the way, they meet a diverse group of local residents and historians, who shed light on the racially complex history of the early Chinese in the segregated South. Their emotional journey also leads them to discover how the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 impacted their family and how deep their roots run in America.

I found the search into Baldwin's family history be to fascinating. The effort that went into this documentary should be commended. The producers have done the world a favor by adding a piece to the American history puzzle. Thank you.
