Check out the official trailer below.

Tigertail tells the story of Pin-Jui (Lee Hong-chi), a free-spirited yet impoverished young Taiwanese factory worker who makes the difficult decision to leave his homeland — and the woman he loves — behind in order to seek better opportunities in America.

But years of monotonous work and an arranged marriage devoid of love or compassion leave an older Pin-Jui (Tzi Ma) a shadow of his former self. Unable to sympathize with his daughter Angela (Christine Ko) and at risk of living out his retirement in solitude, Pin-Jui must reconnect with his past in order to finally build the life he once dreamed of having. The film spans continents and decades, from 1950s Taiwan to present-day New York City.
