Inhaltsangabe: Lali, a beautiful young Burmese lady is "found" by Lee, who arranges with her massage parlor 'mama san' to allow her to go to the States to embark on a modeling career. Lee is a middle -aged inventor/manipulator who is bedazzled by her. By way of Bangkok and Vienna, they arrive in San Francisco and hook up with Jeremiah who does pseudo photo-shoot. Jeremiah is also smitten by the Asian beauty and he manages to dispose of Lee in persuit of her favors. Lali breaks free, takes a bus to the Sierra Nevada foothills and embarks on new friendships and a genuine romance with Tim - a young carpenter/musician.
During an outdoor concert by Tim's R&B band, Lali is lured away by a charismatic Latino hustler. She escapes his rape attempt only to find herself struggling to survive in a forested wilderness area. After close calls with a cougar, and then a bear, she meets and is adopted by a group of back-to-the-land folks who are camped out in the woods for the summer.
The Lali story is peppered with succinct comparisons between "Western" and Southeast Asian lifestyles. Through Lali's eyes, we see the cultural similarities between rural Burmese people and the Native American back-to-nature tribe that adopts her into their family.
Inhaltsangabe: Based on true events, Lali's Passage is the quirky story of a beautiful young Burmese lady who escapes from a Thai brothel and embarks upon manifold adventures over three continents.
