When Tony-award winning playwright, David Henry Hwang, protests the casting of a white actor as the lead Asian character in the musical Miss Saigon he becomes a poster boy for Asian American rights in the 1990s. But in a comical twist of fate, he mistakenly casts a white actor, Marcus G. Dahlman, in the lead Asian role of his own play. As he attempts to pass Marcus off as a Siberian Jew, D.H.H. is forced to question the constitutions of race, identity, and nationality in this fun mockumentary of the playwright's life.
