Directed by Daryl Wein
Dressed in a white jumpsuit and armed with a microphone wired to a portable speaker, Sophia emphatically performs monologues in a supermarket, in a public park, and throughout a shopping mall while trying to make ends meet with odd jobs from TaskRabbit. Expressing herself through these multiple identities as an Asian American performance artist, she embarks on a journey to discover her path in life.
The voice of star and co-writer Vivian Bang resonates throughout the script as Sophia’s life is interrupted by a director asking her to perform a role in her “native dialect” and unrequited love initiated from chance meetings with a new friend. The struggles to be seen and heard as a Korean-born artist in modern Los Angeles become a rite of passage.
