Passes include :
Charlie Chiv as Jay Yi Mou- A hopeless romantic who works in a fortune cookie factory in San Francisco's Chinatown. Michael Jordan is his icon though he will never excel to that level of physical dexterity. In fact, Jay is the type who bumps into furniture and gets fortunes like"True love happens once in a lifetime, unfortunately your time has passed"
Donna Leichenko as Mary Ling- A writer. Mary is a free spirit with the heart of a poet. She has the tendency to walk barefoot in St. Mary's Park reading Ferlinghetti's CONEY ISLAND OF THE MIND and performs spoken word at an open mic in clubs.
Marcus Ho as Ethan Kwan An artist with a "Picasso syndrome" who loves all women and finds some kind of salvation in making love to them and also painting them. He is extremely good looking and charismatic. He could probably lead a revolution if he had the inclination to.
Andrew Pang as Mark - Jay's best friend and confidante; is a bartender in Chinatown's Golden Empress, a dim sum restaurant. He is the successful, hip guy, especially with girls, that Jay would like to be.
Les J.N. Mau as Mr.Wong
An herbalist who recites poetry; anywhere between 50 and 100 years old.
by Fay and Michael Kanin
