Full Synopsis

Ah Na is an illegal immigrant in New York City who finds employment in a Chinese restaurant. Fleeing from the persecution of her native village in China, she discovers that more oppression awaits her in America. In a naive quest for the American Dream, Ah Na begins visiting Grand Central Station’s ‘Golden Palace’, where Caucasian men go to pick up immigrant women. She meets Jack, a slick suburbanite whom she hopes will help her to start a new life. However, Jack falls devastatingly short of her expectations.

Miss Wonton is Singaporean filmmaker Meng Ong’s debut feature that made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001 and won the FIPRESCI Prize at the 54th Locarno Film Festival.
