In the U.S. indie film The Motel
, Ernest, a Chinese American who pens autobiographical stories in notebooks, spends his after-school hours cleaning a motel's toilets and masturbating to porn mags he finds under the beds. He befriends Sam, a Korean American who spends his days drinking, picking up whores, and brooding over his failed marriage. It's an odd pairing of two loners brought together by grief.
