The Motel Trailer



“I roared out loud with laughter!”
- Andrew O’Hehir, Salon

“The backdrop of this seedy motel is just the perfect place to illustrate the awkward times of early teen life.”
- Eric Campos, Film Threat

“A momentous achievement!”
- Jeff Yang, SF Chronicle

Puberty sucks, and nobody knows it better than 13-year-old Ernest Chin (Jeffrey Chyau). As he watches guests come and go, Ernest finds himself forever stuck at his family's hourly-rate motel, where he divides his time between taking orders from his overbearing mom, cleaning up after whatever miscreants the motel may attract and longing for the girl of his dreams, 15-year-old Christine (Samantha Futerman, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA).

When charismatic Sam Kim (Sung Kang, PEARL HARBOR, BETTER LUCK TOMORROW, THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT) checks into the motel, fatherless Ernest is taken under his wing and hustled toward manhood, for better or worse.
