The Los Angeles Chinese Drum and Bugle Corps is an important fixture of the Chinese American community — not only serving as its representative in parades and events, but also as an activity bringing the young Chinese American middle class together. Capturing the all-American fervor of parade competition, CHINATOWN 2-STEP takes the viewer through the group’s performances and interviews with the Corps’ members and their parents.
