Come See the Paradise synopsis

In this drama from director Alan Parker, on-the-lam Jack McGurn (Dennis Quaid) flees to Los Angeles and takes a job as a projectionist at a movie theater owned by a Japanese-American man (Sab Shimono). Jack falls for the owner's daughter, Lily (Tamlyn Tomita), but they are forced to elope to Seattle when her father forbids the relationship.
