Showcasing the people, places, businesses, and history that make up the pillars of Chinatowns in Vancouver, Montreal, and New York, Big Fight in Little Chinatown focuses on the consistent effort required to preserve the essence of the storied communities.
While each city’s Chinatown is facing problems that appear different on the surface, the documentary makes it clear that those willing to put up the big fight are often facing a David vs. Goliath-type task, and are not willing to back down in the face of those odds.
