CURTAIN UP! follows elementary school kids in New York's Chinatown as they prepare for the musical production of "Frozen Kids" and begin to discover their identities. Behind the scenes, they face Asian stereotypes, their families’ expectations, and uncertainties post-graduation. But it is through rehearsing for this American favorite that these kids grapple with their Chinese roots. Will they have to let something go? (Content Warning: Identity-Based Prejudice)
