Things Are Looking Up

Abstract
A young, first generation immigrant Chinese man named Ray living in Honolulu, Hawaii falls in love with a language student named Jessika. After a series of awkward encounters in which Ray fails to find a chance to express the full extent of his affection, Jessika makes off to the mainland United States for a green-card marriage. Months later, after failing to secure either a marriage or a green card, alone and out of money, Jessika calls Ray from a remote town in California and asks for his help to bring her to the airport in San Francisco, where she will end her disastrous journey in America by returning to her hometown in China. Gripped by a sense of responsibility and regret, Ray reluctantly agrees, knowing well that this is the last opportunity he will have with the woman he loves.
