Painted Nails

In Painted Nails, Van Hoang, a Vietnamese immigrant nail salon owner makes it clear she has nothing to hide. A story that starts with isolation and unfolds into an empowerment tale, opens in the salon as Van eats Pho and paints pretty designs on her clients’ nails. When Van learns the health risks posed by the salon chemicals, she summons her courage to testify in Washington and confronts her fears for her unborn baby.
