The Chinese Lady tells the story of fourteen-year-old Afong Moy as she's brought to the United States from Guangzhou Province in 1834. Allegedly the first Chinese woman to set foot on US soil, she has been put on display for the American public as "The Chinese Lady." For the next half-century, she performs for curious white people, showing them how she eats, what she wears, and the highlight of the event: how she walks with bound feet. As the decades wear on, her celebrated sideshow comes to define and challenge her very sense of identity. Inspired by the true story of Afong Moy's life, 'The Chinese Lady' is a dark, poetic, yet whimsical portrait of America through the eyes of a young Chinese woman.
