In the summer of 2006, working college students Joey and Lanna Dueck were hoping to fill an empty bedroom in their small suburban home. When Lanna stumbles on an organization seeking a home in which to place a young Taiwanese student with aspirations to learn English, the fit seemed perfect and from the moment Candy landed in Phoenix, Arizona to the last security checkpoint on the way home eight months later, all three skipped from one adventure to the next while swapping words, food and plenty of laughs. Follow Candy as she careens through crammed store aisles on a bicycle and Lanna chokes down jellied duck eggs. Witness the murder of a teddy bear and a bizarre Vegas wedding as a story of struggle and triumph emerges when East meets West and Candy, Joey and Lanna develop a friendship that spans the immense culture gap between two hemispheres.
