Fortune Cookie                   Magic Tricks

A Film by Alex Chu


A traditional Chinese father struggles to cope with his son’s homosexuality, which then takes an absurd and comical turn for the worse…


A traditional Chinese father (Huang) visits his ill son (Justin) cooped up at a “discount” hospital along with Justin’s boyfriend (Chris). Believing that homosexuality can be “cured”, Huang tries to teach Justin the birds and the bees, only to be rebuffed by Chris in song. Huang then resorts to a botched Chinese exorcism that awakens zombies, whom they must defeat by setting aside their own differences…
