Movie Info

Kyoko came to America in the first place to get over a failed romance and to show that she has an independent spirit. She speaks almost no English and is living at the "Y" while working at a restaurant. If she doesn't get a green card soon, she will have to return to Japan, and she's not willing to do that just yet. Before too long, a friend of hers sets her up with a marriage to a seemingly dull-witted Japanese-American boy who speaks no Japanese, and she cheerfully agrees to the convenient union. However, in this at times humorous independently produced drama, she is not pleased when her close proximity to him wakes her phony husband out of his mental slumber, and he starts trying to woo her in earnest.
