Two families living worlds apart in the same community collide when pride and mischief inspire Chinese immigrant Tom Xia to challenge the Jones family to celebrate Christmas without any Chinese products.
Fed up with toy and food recalls, the Jones family accepts the consumer mission-impossible and is drawn into a surprising intercultural exchange with the Xia family. As the Joneses wrestle with the escalating influence of China in their lives and Tom struggles to get beyond the stereotypes, he realizes that he’s on a deeper journey to understand the complexities of his own divided loyalties between the US and China. (70 min. All ages)
