Stranded in Sin City for Christmas, 12-year-old Adeline struggles to keep her mother’s gambling under control, all for the promise of a perfect family holiday once her father arrives.
Tiffanie’s first short film, SUTURES, was made in AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women and won several awards, including Best Short at the Asian American International Film Festival. Her latest film WONDERLAND stars Joan Chen and debuts her daughter, Audrey Hui.
Tiffanie is a recipient of the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship. Currently, she is directing a feature documentary following children’s struggles with water along six major rivers of the world.
