Whenever the kraken returns to threaten their city, hundreds of eager San Franciscans gather on the beach to watch as their brave sailors fight the creature until it is forced to retreat. Only one—Alice Jung, a Chinese-American teenager who had to drop out of school to help support her family—has a real plan to end the menace once and for all, but no one with the power to put her plan into action would ever listen to an undereducated Asian girl. There’s nothing for it but to turn away and return to her little room to sew beads on slippers for the rest of her days... is what someone else would say.
