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.
