A San Francisco Manilatown community of elder Chinese and Filipino Manongs tennants were inhumanely evicted for urban renewal in the dead of night by 300 cops. A restored and optimized version of his 1983 film, groundbreaking director Curtis Choy documents the fight and last hold of a community being erased, unknown to many, but just as relevant than ever today.
