In English with none subtitles.
Includes violence and adult language.

In the culturally diverse world of Los Angeles, a young hustler navigates through various cliques while facing racism, danger and a moral struggle with his illicit occupation. And it's only Monday.

Director's Statement

"Monday" winner of HBO Asian Pacific Islanders Visionaries contest, gave me an opportunity to express and address some of the racial nuances and relationships I've been encountering throughout my life. The characters, scenes, interactions, and themes were borne from influences, but the challenge was to make them relatable and entertaining. The culmination is a fast-paced, quick-witted, part-fiction, part-autobiography story about a young Asian-American hustler who struggles with the ethical and moral implications of his actions.

Category: Drama, Award Winner, Best of Fest.
