SARS, A Love Story

North American Premiere

USA, China | 30 MINUTES | English, Mandarin |


An American travels to China to meet his wife's extended family for the first time, but the couple soon find themselves caught up in the SARS panic that is sweeping through the country. Their attempts to turn the trip into the honeymoon they never had are met with delirium and boredom in this dual examination of love in dire circumstances and the media's need for spectacle. In English and Mandarin.
