What is Snakehead About?
Sister Tse gets smuggled from China to New York City by a smuggler or snakehead who usually brings illegal migrants into the country. Soon after her arrival, she reconnects with her family in Chinatown but has a steep task ahead of herself. She joins the ranks of her crime family to repay a huge loan of $57,000 for her trip to the land of opportunities. While she has to do unpleasant jobs for the money, Tse is unperturbed by the challenges in her way. She quickly climbs the ranks of the criminal underworld and soon becomes the closest confidant of the family matriarch Dai Mah.
Her success makes her an obvious candidate to become the next leader when Dai Mah decides to give up.
