Synopsis

Chinatown in New York City is like a traditional village set in the midst of Manhattan. A Tightly packed neighborhood of torturously winding and overcrowded streets. Tung Tak Chiu's days are spent at The Hong Hop Noodle Company right in the village.

He is a man for all jobs in the bustling factory. A delightfully humorous individual, with an animated face, and with movements that could belong to a dancer.

This short portrait film shows a typical day in the life of "The Noodle Man", walking the streets, shopping, working at the many tasks to create hand made noodles.

Then after work a game of checkers, shopping for food and then home for a lonely meal.

An ordinary day, as experienced by many hard-working residents of Chinatown. But this charming man brings an insight into "a day in the life" that few visitors will ever see.
