Working alongside Helen and Liza, Lily becomes the face of Vincent’s campaign, uniting Asian American communities from across the nation. In the process, she wrestles against personal grief, and an unjust judicial system as she struggles to fight for Vincent’s civil rights.
When Vincent’s mother, Lily, learns of the lenient sentences given to her son's killers, she sets out to enlist the help of a determined journalist, Helen Zia, and an ambitious attorney, Liza Chan, to take Vincent’s case federal. As Helen and Liza put the pieces together and build their case, Lily realizes much more is required of her than expected and struggles with whether or not she can find the strength to move forward.
Hold Still, Vincent documents the true story of Vincent Chin, who was killed by two disgruntled autoworkers. His murderers were given lenient sentences, which sparked a civil rights movement within the Asian American community. Hold Still, Vincent is an unflinching and visceral examination of one family’s fight for justice that is conducive to the current racial zeitgeist in America today.
