BITTER MELON is the story of a Filipino-American family who reunites for a Christmas party at the family home in San Francisco only to find out that Troy (Patrick Epino), the second oldest child, has been ruling the house with fear—intimidating everyone who lives there—including his mother, and even physically abusing his wife. What starts as a fun holiday reunion turns into a darkly humorous crime scene as Declan (Jon Norman Schneider), the youngest son, leads the family as they conspire on how to best murder the violent and abusive Troy. The film made its world premiere at this year’s CAAMFest and made its way around the festival circuit all over the U.S.
