The Wongs are keeping up appearances as the model Chinese-American family living a blissful existence in suburban New York. Upon closer examination we find that Ed Wong (Tzi Ma, THE LADYKILLERS, THE QUIET AMERICAN, RUSH HOUR), his devoted wife May-Li (Freda Foh Shen, Mulan, A MIGHTY WIND), and their three overachieving daughters are in fact a rather bizarre family living disconnected lives.
Samantha (Jacqueline Kim, CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES) is the eldest and most accomplished of the Wong sisters. An ambitious businesswoman she is soon to be married to Mark (Jayce Bartok, THE STATION AGENT), an equally successful young man whose main concern is the seating arrangement. The middle sister, Julie (Elaine Kao), is a shy medical student whose life is turned upside down when she falls for actress Mia Scarlett (Mia Riverton) at the hospital to research an upcoming role. The youngest daughter, Katie (Kathy Shao-Lin Lee), is a precocious and disaffected high school senior engaged in an elaborate and dangerous war of practical jokes with her neighbor Simon (Sebastian Stan). Family dinners are the frequent scene of sibling bickering with their detached father and overbearing mother.
Eventually the Wongs' fašade begins to crumble under the weight of denial, miscommunication and collective neuroses.
In Georgia Lee's feature directorial debut, RED DOORS addresses some of the most primal, sacred, and universal bonds that connect parents and children, creating a contemporary portrait of an American family.
