CGiii Comment

"In pursuit of something better."

In the 1990s, "Unbroken Ties" captivates as Min, an orphaned Burmese, secures a US diversity visa. Alongside a diverse San Francisco cohort, including his childhood friend, Min navigates societal fringes in pursuit of employment. Yet, a mundane charity job unravels buried revelations, sowing mistrust among friends. This potent film celebrates immigrant, mother, and LGBTQA resilience, illuminating the global struggles of orphans and minorities. Their unyielding determination shines, crafting a heartfelt portrayal of hope and the indomitable human spirit.
