The film introduces Sam’s wife, Eva, and then his son Jules and then gradually the whole family. There arise problems for the family as time passes by.
Sam and his brothers later get to start their own business selling televisions. The business is a profitable one and lets the businessmen make good money. Television is the newest fad in the market then.

Images from the media such as film, magazines, and fiction to name a few, serve to perpetuate the status quo by continually providing the public with stereotypical images of the inferior races. Shaw writes about the Asian stereotype, "These images can be understood as "controlling images" in the sense that negative stereotypes provide justifications for social control and positive stereotypes provide normative models for Asian thought and behavior (1)." It is particularly important to use these stereotypes when defining the males of these inferior races to justify the white male dominance of the culture.
