Riceboy Sleeps, Anthony Shim
After losing her husband, So-young relocates to Canada in the 1990s with their young son, Dong-hyun in tow. There, they must fight for acceptance and respect. Dong-hyun is brutally bullied by his classmates, and he isn’t helped by the timid, distinctly Canadian racism of his teacher and principal, who consider the family “troublesome.” At work, So-young battles loneliness and racist and sexist comments. As they negotiate with their separate circumstances, the rift between mother and son grows.
