About Nomad Motel:

In the not-so-sunny side of California, Alix bounces between motel rooms, taking care of her brothers for her mostly MIA mother. Her classmate Mason is a budding songwriter trying to keep off the radar of his absent father in Hong Kong. Together, they must learn to scrape by without giving up their dreams. Nomad Motel is a surprising tale of kids raising themselves and making something out of nothing in the land of plenty.

Our Nomad Motel Review

James (Andrew Pang) is a widower and international man of mystery. He roams the streets of Hong Kong and Tokyo sporting large tattoos and accumulating various flesh wounds. Fiona (Samantha Mathis) is a failed actress who married poorly. She roams the streets of Los Angeles and Disneyland in a constant skid of compromises.
