From the independent filmmaking collective Borscht comes this animation made with beautiful, emotionally resonant line drawings. As a nameless Chinese manicurist in a Miami salon attempts to describe her feelings in the little English she knows, a deep sense of longing arises. 

Screens before August at Akiko's.
