In the early days of LA's Koreatown, a club owner dreams of something more. Entwined in his story are his wife, his mistress, and

his daughter. Each  dealing with his death, they meet at his memorial service; his daughter trying desperately to understand

her absentee father. Luxe and glamorous, Persimmon Nights and the Kimchi Kittens explores family history and the emotional toll of being Asian

in a foreign land.
