Synopsis

Three Chinese students, Tzu, Wa and Chen, come to study in America in the summer of 1980. They move into a New York City apartment next door to Dexter, a graduate student who introduces them to Suzanne, his occasional girlfriend, and to Billy, a struggling filmmaker. The Chinese find America fascinating. However, their perceptions, based on watching non-stop television, changes when one of them is brutally mugged, Suzanne takes up with Chen behind Dexter's back, and Zap, Suzanne's ex boyfriend, stalks them into a state of terror. When John Lennon is murdered on December 8, 1980, the students decide to buy a gun for self-defense.
