Kit (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians) returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was six years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. There he meets Lee, his estranged second cousin, Linh, a young Vietnamese student, and arranges an online date that turns into something more with Lewis (Parker Sawyers, Southside With You), an American clothing designer. Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he's no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.

This guide has been designed to provide information on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I).  It was created and is maintained by a team of staff members from the Libraries and Student Achievement Centers. This team was formed in July 2020 and supports the College strategies of providing a safe, inclusive and representative space for students and staff.  Here you will find resources about activities and efforts at Madison College, in our local communities, and nationally. You may find links to and information about educational and training resources, as well as materials for personal growth.
