Sun is not surprised when his father tells him that it is Sun's turn to go to America.  His brothers had already gone and they left when they were twelve.  But the laws in America are strict.  Sun will not be allowed to land in San Francisco with his father.  He will have to go to Angel Island and pass an interrogation before he can step foot on land.  His answers must match his father's exactly or else he will be sent back.  How will he ever be able to do that?
