Ellie was a highly educated engineer whose promising career was compromised by Edwin’s poor English speaking skills when he moved to the US.

He takes up the job as a station manager of the local train depot to provide for his daughter, but poor pay hinders his ability to move up the ladder.

Wu is the writer and co-producer on the film.

Anthony Bregman and M Blair Breard are also producing with executive producers Erica Matlin and Greg Zuk.
