Written by Michael Golamco, this edgy comedy centers on Travis, a Korean-American English teacher living in a small Wyoming town who must compete with a handsome white gym teacher for the affection of his new colleague: an Asian American woman who is only attracted to white men. The ensuing battle is less about her and more about American identity. Based on Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, Cowboy Versus Samurai is much more than your average romcom. This elaborate homage is a sharp social commentary that explores interracial dating, sex and the personal struggle of double consciousness.
