Three Cambodian American teenagers come of age in Lowell, Massachusetts, shadowed by their parents' nightmares of the Khmer Rouge. In the country they now call home, fast import cars, hip hop culture, and new romance attempt to pull them away, but their devotion to the Angkor Dance Troupe provides a link to the traditional Cambodian culture of their parents. Filmed over the course of three years, this documentary chronicles the transformation of these youths as they meet the challenges that come with reaching adulthood, including driving, working, and getting into college.
