Director Pamela Tom’s feature debut tells the true story of 105-year-old pioneering Chinese American artist and Disney Legend Tyrus Wong, set against a backdrop of immigration, poverty, and racial prejudice. Although his design work was crucial to the animated classic BAMBI and over 100 live-action movies, including THE MUSIC MAN, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, and THE WILD BUNCH, the name Tyrus Wong remains largely unknown—until now.
