FLOAT is a short film set in Seattle in the mid-1990s, following the day-to-day trials and tribulations of Cambodian American hustler, Rocky Mang. Still living at home with his family, Rocky spends his days cruising the streets of Seattle, slanging cheap goods on the corner as he struggles to help his family make ends meet. His days are a hazy wash of grinding and hustling, only broken by his persistent attempts to convince a local barista named Jenni-Mo Day to go on a date.


This film played at the 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
