Shanghai Kiss


Liam Liu is a 28-year-old aspiring Asian-American actor whose so-called career is going nowhere and whose only meaningful relationship is with a high school girl. When he inherits his grandmother's house in China, he goes to Shanghai in an attempt to sell it. Instead, he discovers his parents' home city and all the marvels it hold, including a woman whom he believes is his soul mate. He suddenly finds himself at a crossroad - does he choose this new exotic world full of wonders or does he go back to America and make an honest attempt to put his life in order?
