I don't think you can come out of this and not fall in love with Ai. She tells her story in a way that is laugh out loud funny while still delving into very real issues. Her experience of moving to America is one that everyone should hear. Entertaining, heartfelt, and unique, it's definitely worth a watch.... full review
