“A must-see for all”
Culturs: The Global Multicultural Magazine

“Funny, dramatic, passionate, heartbreaking, and engaging”

Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA Film Review

“A raw, moving sociological odyssey... Amazing amount of humor, aplomb and hope”
The Williams Record

“Told in beautifully written and poignantly acted vignettes about her life, Liang’s show is dynamic and vivid...heart-wrenching and painfully honest, but it is also really funny...works as both a play and a movie. This is no small feat.”

Sezín Koehler, Black Girl Nerds
