Chinese-American filmmaker Theresa Loong creates an intimate portrait of her father, a man fifty years her senior. Viewers explore the bonds of the father-daughter relationship and place themes of growing older, immigration and racism in the context of "living history." Paul Loong (American Legion member, retired Veterans Affairs doctor, practicing Catholic) talks of his experiences as a POW in Japan and his subsequent quest to become an American. We discover why, despite much suffering, "every day is a holiday."
