In a twisted coincidence, Cheung (Philip Keung), the mastermind behind the robbery, is facing trial, and the prosecutor is none other than Ling's mother, Ann Gao (Zhang Jingchu). Tragedy repeats itself when Cheung hires someone to kidnap Ling and blackmail Ann. Tong sets out in a desperate race against time to save Ling.

The goal of the event is to connect the Argentine community in the Bay Area with the international students at Stanford. We will host an asado (a traditional Argentine barbecue) and expect students (mostly graduate but also some undergraduate), Bay Area residents and alumni of all ages, both from an ethnic background in Argentina as
well as other countries in Latin America, along with people from other nationalities (most often US citizens who have lived in Argentina).
The Argentinos@Stanford group was established in 1993 and since that time has maintained an up-to-date contact list of people in the Bay Area that are interested in the cultural and social events that the group organizes.

This event is sponsored by the Bechtel International Center and the Billie Achilles Fund
