    When Kimberly Chang and her mother emigrate from Hong Kong to Brooklyn squalor, she quickly begins a secret double life: exceptional schoolgirl during the day, Chinatown sweatshop worker in the evenings. Disguising the more difficult truths of her life-like the staggering degree of her poverty, the weight of her family's future resting on her shoulders, or her secret love for a factory boy who shares none of her talent or ambition-Kimberly learns to constantly translate not just her language but herself back and forth between the worlds she straddles.

    Twenty-two-year-old Charlie Wong grew up in New York's Chinatown, the older daughter of a Beijing ballerina and a noodle maker. Though an ABC (America-born Chinese), Charlie's entire world has been limited to this small area. Now grown, she lives in the same tiny apartment with her widower father and her 11-year-old sister, and works - miserably - as a dishwasher. But when she lands a job as a receptionist at a ballroom dance studio, Charlie gains access to a world she hardly knew exis.

    Som elleveårig emigrerer Kim Chang med sin mor fra Hongkong til USA, og de ankommer fulde af håb til New York. Virkeligheden viser sig dog hurtigt at blive en anden, end de havde forventet: en forfalden, uopvarmet lejlighed i Brooklyn og lange arbejdsdage i en sweatshop i Chinatown under umenneskelige forhold. Kim kan ikke engelsk og kæmper for at følge med og falde til i skolen, hvor hun altid tidligere har udmærket sig.
