Description: Two stories involving Asian-Americans in Southern California's San Gabriel Valley discovering their dark sides intersect in this post-modern, anti-consumerism feature from co-directors and UCLA graduates Quentin Lee and Justin Lin. Katherine (Jeanne Chin) is a mild-mannered, unhappy young wife who is suffering from blackouts that result in extended periods of lost time. After one such episode, she realizes that she's lost her cellular phone and begins receiving suggestive phone calls, photographs and come-ons from free-spirited, blonde lesbian Trinh, a waitress at the Go-Go Café. Katherine's husband, self-absorbed body builder and successful businessman Jim Lee (Clint Jung) works with a payroll accountant, Phil (Radmar Jao) who believes that he may be a werewolf. His evidence: abnormally fast-growing body hair requiring him to shave every few hours, an insatiable appetite for meat, and a newfound talent for sports. His sister's boyfriend is writing a book about werewolves, and although his therapist is convinced that the numbers-cruncher just needs some sexual release, Phil becomes convinced that he's a lycanthrope after the disappearance of his most recent date and a car accident from which he emerges unscathed. Both Phil and Katherine are on a collision course with revelations about their true natures.~ Karl Williams, All Movie Guide
