It is an excellent film, with a 8,2 rating on IMDB, portraying multiculturalism, its challenges and its benefits.

Before watching the film you will be given the movie poster and some questions about the symbolism and importance of cars, and the city of Detroit, about American war veterans and Asian Americans in the USA.
