Harold strands his apathetic son on the other side of the country. The challenge: make yourself interesting - find your way home and don’t do it quickly. He then alienates his self-hating daughter and pushes away his bored wife to setup this blunt, multi-generational black comedy/drama.
Told from an Asian American perspective by writer|director X. Dean Lim with a script that scored in the top 5% on The Black List, First World Problems is set to premiere at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival.
Featuring Stephen Park (Fargo), Tamlyn Tomita (Berlin Station), Brandon Soo-Hoo (Tropic Thunder) and Nikki Soohoo (The Lovely Bones) and shot by the ethereal lens of Chris Saul (Nike, Lenovo), First World Problems asks just how bad is your shit, really?

EPISODE FIVE: STORYTELLING (23minutes:49seconds)
Breaking from television and film to post a great talk my brother, Doctor Robert Lim, gave a little while back. A retired Colonel in the United States Army, we follow as Robert details the first of his seven or eight tours of the Middle East - I sorta lost count after a while, plus he said he had a few "baby" ones too. No matter what your medium ( books, magazine, film, television, etc.) storytelling is still storytelling. This is also a great example of compelling story coming from simply having something to say. Thank you for listening.
