He and his friends decide on robbing an offering from a rival drug dealer who attends the same church where his estranged father ministers. As the plan commences, Luke attempts to balance his desire to attain the money, keep his friendships, and the need for his father’s love/acceptance. This becomes more difficult when the plan goes awry and Luke is forced to choose which direction he wants his life headed.
Will pay for transportation and meals.
***MUST BE FLUENT IN KOREAN***
An older, short Korean American man although the “American” in the title is a bit misleading. He immigrated to the States as a relatively young man but hasn’t really bothered to work on his English skills out of stubbornness. In Korea, he was an army chaplain and has maintained this rigid religiosity ever since. Being an immigrant, he’s had to go above and beyond to reach a normal standard of living; a sentiment he’s imposed on his sons. He’s been trying to mold his sons into his perception of who they should be ever since they were young children. Much like many Korean fathers, he’s not much for outward physical or verbal affection which he secretly views as a sign of weakness.
