Snakehead is a feature film about a woman's rise in the international underworld of human smuggling set in New York Chinatown.
Here's a part of the project bio from director Evan Jackson Leong:
I humbly present SNAKEHEAD, a passion project that I've been working on for over 9 years.
Inspired by true events and based in New York's Chinatown, we follow our anti hero, Sister Tse as she rises to one of the most sought after human smugglers in FBI history. From the moment she lands in American waters she quickly learns that the American dream wasn't what she was promised. We will explore the reality of the modern American immigrant through the lens of the Chinatown underworld.
Ultimately, this is a story about a Bad ass Asian woman who finds her community as a feared and respected boss.
