Here’s more on the film:
High-school freshman, Nick (The Twilight Saga’s Booboo Stewart), is a neglected teen with mild Asperger’s syndrome whose life is challenged and ultimately changed forever when tragedy hits his family. WHITE FROG is a universal story of the power of family, friendship, and love positioned to appeal to a broad audience in the same way as ORDINARY PEOPLE and STAND BY ME.
Booboo Stewart plays Nick whose life is changed by the unexpected fate of his adored older brother Chaz (Harry Shum Jr.) Joan Chenand BD Wong play the roles of their parents. Margaret Cho (Drop Dead Diva) will play the role of Nick’s unconventional psychiatrist. Kelly Hu (XMEN 2, Hawaii 5-0) and Amy Hill (50 First Dates) are also slated to be in the film too.
Not only will the screen be filled with Asian American talent, but the soundtrack is also packed with amazing artists such as Big Phony, David Choi, CriBabi, Gowe, MC Jin, PaperDoll, Shin-B, Iammedic, and Booboo and Fivel Stewart!
White Frog will be the opening night film for the 2012 San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (March 8, 2012).
