This documentary from Tom Xia explores some of the challenges Americans face while trying to find gifts for their loved ones, and the effects that their purchases of cheaply-produced products have on human connection. A Chinese-American and his family build a new home, while another family tries to avoid Chinese-made products after their son contracts lead poisoning from a product that is eventually recalled.
