Talk Story

Synopsis:
Talk-Story focuses on the Filipino immigrant experience. the central character is Dee abano, a first-generation American daughter in love with old movies, but caught up in an identity crUSAde. She is also a newspaper copy assistant beginning a series of articles on the Filipino experience, most of which are based on her father's colorful and often-told stories. the situation gives Barroga the opportunity to rapidly bounce between Dee's contemporary experiences and those of her Father and uncle in the Philippines and California. Simultaneous histories unfold: the men confronting discrimination with pride and humor, and Dee challenging lingering prejudice and ignorance with fierce determination. What evolves is the clear message that all coping methods come with a price. the older brothers drift into bitterness and denial, while Dee exhausts herself defending against unintended slights. eventually Dee learns the real truth behind her father's stories and discovers that both of them have used fantasy to escape from a reality that is often imperfect.

Walls
