“It is both a passionate exposé of a serious injustice and a big emotional ride that is also prepared to take some interesting risks in its journey towards a old-school tear-jerker finale.”~Lee Marshall, Screen Daily

Aroview: Deeply affecting drama about the impact of America's inhumane citizenship laws on a Korean-American adoptee and tattoo artist, who unexpectedly faces deportation from his home and family in Louisiana.

Based on many real life stories of unnaturalised adoptees who face similar circumstances, this was a labour of love for writer-director-star Justin Chon, who spent four years researching and writing the script.
