INTRIGUE, LOVE and PASSION, lace a spell like a lion dancer weaving through the realities of the Chinese Civil War, the Cultural Revolution, and culminating in a breathtaking sequence of events during the action at TIANANMEN SQUARE.

Caught by the historical happenings during the years 1947-1989 are: American World War II veteran, idealist LOGAN WAINWRIGHT and political realist LIN SULIN, the exotic beauty he loves. In order to find her father, Logan's beautiful and brainy American daughter, CHRISTINE, becomes an expert linguist and translator. She's loved by JASON SIBALUS, a brilliant young American and WU GANG-JO, a charismatic Chinese translator.

Christine and the others interact with historical figures: PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON, KISSINGER, MAO, and ZHOU before and after the pomp and pageantry when the USA flew behind the Bamboo Curtain to open up China to the world. THE GOOD FOREIGNER'S intimate view of actual world-shaking days takes place in both America and China.
