Description

Bobby, a New York born and raised Korean American is a struggling singer-songwriter that still lives at home with his widowed Korean mother. Bobby is presented with the opportunity to travel on a world tour as a roadie for his best friend Billy’s electro-pop band. He abandons the tour upon reaching Seoul, Korea. In Korea he befriends INA who becomes his guide in Seoul and also a partner in music. They perform music together and begin to find success. Just as things are looking positive for the duo, things come to a halt and Bobby needs to decide what’s important to him. Returning to his old life or continuing his journey for self worth in Korea. His time in this land where everyone looks like him helps close certain gaps in his life that question his heritage and his inability to feel fully accepted at home in America.
May 14th at the State Theatre with special guest appearance by director/star Bobby Choy!
