Summary: Based on true events, Looking Past is a dramatic piece about a Vietnam veteran Kien who was imprisoned, but lived to tell the story. The hope of reuniting with his wife Phuong is the only thing that kept him alive. However, Phuong has already started a new life because she thought Kien was dead. Kien accepts that fact eventually, and uses the story to teach the young man Hai to deal with his problems. "My cards are horrible too, but that didn't stop me from playing the game." The lesson in card play is also a lesson in life. This is one of the best piece by LCC. The writers and directors spent many months researching for accuracy. The director and the dramatic leads are all the best in the group at the time. It gives you something to reflect upon. You have to see it to believe it.

Summary: This really catchy song is an Asian man's experience of coming to the United States, fitting in, and being proud of being Asian American. While Walter sings this very cute song, other cast members do dramatizations in the background. It sure was entertaining. If you were there, you probably had the chorus stuck in your head for three days.
