SYNOPSIS: New York, 2016. Chinese American playwright DHH walks home the night after the 2016 election, shocked by the outcome. He remembers that a producer from Shanghai, Xue Xing, had predicted this election result, arguing that democracy is flawed and chaotic. Xue Xing has hired DHH to write a Chinese musical intended for Broadway, as part of his nation's quest to gain "soft power" through art and culture, but DHH has been struggling to write it. Suddenly, DHH is stabbed in the neck by an unknown assailant. He passes out and dreams a musical about Xue Xing coming to the US and falling in love with Hillary Clinton. In this musical, DHH sees America - its culture and politics - through the eyes of China: a deeply militarized, religious fundamentalist, violent society where Hillary’s campaign event is a production number at a McDonald’s. When Hillary loses the election and a MAGA thug stabs DHH to death, Xue Xing steps in as the "yellow hero" who will save America from itself. Eventually, DHH awakens from his dream in a hospital bed. He's telling us this story today, in 2024, after a pandemic in which violent attacks against AAPIs became common. Despite the continuing threats to AAPIs and our nation, DHH chooses to continue believing in democracy.
