Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Chung Nam )Goro Kishitani) is one of the millions of Korean residents of Japan, unassimilated to that country and without citizenship even after several hundred years. Anti-Korean prejudice is strong, so he calls himself by the Japanese-sounding name Tadao. He earns his living by driving a cab for a Korean-owned taxi company. He can't decide who he dislikes more: his mother or the (recent) immigrants who come to her sleazy nightclub. However, she has recently hired a lovely girl from the Philippines (Ruby Moreno) who charms his socks off. Maybe his anti-immigrant posture will get changed by her.
