The name of this film is Wild Grass, just like the fate of Chinese Americans.In 2004, the Philadelphia government promulgated the curfew law, mainly restricting the restaurants opened in residential areas to stop operating before 11 pm. In the following 14 years, 96% of the tickets issued by the police station were given to Chinese restaurants. This racially discriminatory law enforcement case was sued by the Chinese restaurant owner against the city government of Philadelphia in 2017. In 2018, the Federal Supreme Court announced that the Chinese restaurant won the case. Thus ending the 15-year discriminatory bill.
