The Morning Passing on El Cajón Boulevard follows Julie - a young and ambitious second generation Vietnamese American funeral director working in City Heights, known as the refugee neighborhood of San Diego, California. Julie is used to managing funerals every week, but after the unexpected passing of her own father, Julie seeks help from Đồ Thái Uyên, a San Diego legend who has managed funerals (and taxes) for southeast asian families since the 1980s. A brief and intimate glimpse into the ways refugee families mourn the loss of loved ones far from their homelands.
