about the film:

“Walk Run Cha-Cha” tells the story of two young lovers, Paul and Millie, separated by the collapse of Vietnam at the end of the war. Years later, they are reunited as Vietnamese refugees starting their lives over in California. The film is an epic immigration story complete with the willingness to reinvent oneself later in life going beyond daily responsibilities to find happiness and fulfillment on the dance floor. Walk Run Cha-Cha is a beautiful tribute to new beginnings.

Nominated for an Academy Award in 2020
