The Motel

The Motel

Ernest Chin (Jeffrey Chyau) is a chubby, thirteen-year-old Chinese-American kid whose family owns and runs a hot-sheet motel. After school but before homework, Ernest works, changing sheets and cleaning the rooms, making for comic confrontations that also bring Ernest face-to-face with a side of life he’s just beginning to understand. When a charismatic Korean-American guy (Sung Kang) reeling from a broken marriage checks in, Ernest finds in him something of a mentor: but is this a case of the blind leading the blind-sided?
