What happens when the naiveté of a political rookie clashes with the realities of racial and partisan politics of the South? Mr. Cao Goes to Washington is a fascinating character study of Congressman Joseph Cao, a Vietnamese American Republican elected as a fluke in an African American Democratic district in New Orleans. Will Cao make it through his term with his idealism intact?
