In New York City, Canal Street divides Little Italy and Chinatown, and a bridge separates Manhattan from Brooklyn. But this doesn’t stop a turf war from erupting among Italian and Chinese organized crime syndicates. Mob bosses Al Capella (Tony Darrow: Goodfellas, Analyze This), Amadore Condimento (Vincent Pastore: The Sopranos, Mickey Blue Eyes), and Hung Phat (Lo Meng: Ip Man 2, Five Deadly Venoms), control the herbs and spices in Little Italy and Chinatown. It’s the oldest crime syndicate, begun centuries ago by Marco Polo.
Despite being Chinese, Vincent “Vinnie” Chow (Jay Kwon: The Punisher, Iron Fist) embarks on a personal quest to join the Italian Mafia to attract the Italian girl of his dreams. In his hilarious attempts to prove himself mob-worthy, Vinny Chow is drawn into a series of double-crosses instigated by New York's dirty crime commissioner Sean O'Greedy (Raymond J. Barry: Walk Hard, Year of the Dragon), who is playing all the mob bosses against one another.
Along with his Italian friend Joey Risotto and gay Black friend Lawrence, Vinny is recruited by “The Two Johnsons” to impersonate the Italian DON to infiltrate the Mafia and gather evidence to take down New York’s Crime Syndicate. With a little help from two unlikely sages, “Wisdom” (Shing Ka: The Manchurian Candidate, Revenge of the Green Dragons) and “Knowledge” (Geoff Lee: The Black List, Year of the Dragon), “Vinny” Chow finally finds himself, his Chinese culture and his true love (Shuya Chang: Sneakhead, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2).
Also starring Paul Borghese (The Irishman), Tony Ray Rossi (Donny Brasco), and featuring Chiu Chi Ling (Kung-Fu Hustle), Celia Au (Wu Assassins), Joseph D’Onofrio (A Bronx Tale), Artie Pasquale (The Sopranos), William DeMeo (Gotti) and stand-up comedians Goumba Johnny and Jeff Pirrami.
Co-directed by Robert J. Samuels (My Asian Auntie) and EMMY winner James Lew (Marvel’s Luke Cage) and written and produced by Mark V. Wiley (Martial Arts Hall of Fame), Made in Chinatown is the world’s first-ever Mafia/Kung-fu/Romantic Comedy.
The title “Made in Chinatown” is a play on the phrase “Made in China” and the Italian Mafia’s notion of being “Made.” And so, Vinny Chow literally is Made in Chinatown.
