Chinatown

Excerpts

They came from thousands of miles away, Canton, Shanghai, Hong Kong. And they have an unreachable dream. They live in San Francisco’s Chinatown on Stockton, Jackson, Grant, in one-room apartments. According to Chinese tradition it is time for them to return to their hometowns to die. As in the old Chinese saying," The falling leaves must return to their roots."
Instead, confined to this small ghetto, these elderly Chinese with their fading spirits gather in Portsmouth Square or in centers for the elderly. They find their own world reminiscing about the past.
