RED LETTERS is the moving story of Shen, an immigrant from China, who leaves his wife Mei to come to Canada seeking his fortune. Once established, he hopes to bring her over to join him. With the enactment of the $500 head tax and the Exclusion Act in 1923, the promise of Gold Mountain is betrayed. Harsh realities of life in Vancouver force Shen to take drastic action if he is ever to see his dreams fulfilled.  Performed in English with Mandarin subtitles.
