The Grace Lee Project

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 10pm on WORLD.

When Korean American filmmaker Grace Lee was growing up in Missouri, she was the only Grace Lee she knew. Once she left the Midwest however, everyone she met seemed to know "another Grace Lee." But why did they assume that all Grace Lees were reserved, dutiful, piano-playing overachievers? 

Lee plunges into a funny, highly unscientific investigation into all those Grace Lees who break the mold -- from a fiery social activist to a rebel who tried to burn down her high school. With wit and charm, The Grace Lee Project puts a hilarious spin on the eternal question, "What's in a name?"
