Thousand Pieces of Gold

1991 Rated PG-13 1hr 45m

In the late 19th century, Lalu (Rosalind Chao), a poor Chinese woman, is sold into marriage in America. She's sent to a tough Idaho mining town -- not to marry, but to work as a prostitute in a saloon run by fellow countryman Hong King (Michael Paul Chan). When Lalu refuses the job, her dignity proves irresistible to King's partner, Charlie (Chris Cooper). Dennis Dun co-stars in this "American Playhouse" presentation, based on a true story.
