Tony Quon is an active, 10 year-old Chinese immigrant who learns to adjust to an American school. Tony describes his first impressions of his strange classrooms and new life while we follow him through Los Angeles. Set in L.A.’s Chinatown neighborhood, TO BE ME, TONY QUON offers a vivid depiction of Tony’s world, culminating with the food, firecrackers, and lion dances of Chinese New Year.
