THE LIONS OF CHINATOWN follows a young woman as she trains to become the lion head, a traditionally male dominated role in the forgotten art of Chinese lion dancing. Sara is ending a 5 year trial and hopes to become an official member of Hung Ching, The Chinese Freemasons, New York City Chinatown's most notorious lion dance crew since 1956.
