Description
The Wangs vs. the World is an outrageously funny tale about a wealthy Chinese-American family that "loses it all, then takes a healing, uproarious road trip across the United States" (Entertainment Weekly). Their spectacular fall from riches to rags brings the Wangs together in a way money never could. It's an epic family saga and an entirely fresh look at what it means to belong in America.
