Half: The Story of a Chinese-Jamaican Son

Born in Jamaica in 1931 to a Chinese father and Jamaican mother, Vincent Lee was sent to China at the age of five. There, he endured a life of hardship and servitude in the care of Chinese relatives. Half paints a portrait of a man caught in the cultural traditions of pre-Communist China and his longing to be reunited with his family.
