Coby and Stephen Are in Love

Coby Yee, a 92- year-old retired nightclub dancer and icon from San Francisco Chinatown, and Stephen King, an experimental filmmaker 20 years her junior, have found an unlikely love in each other through matching outfits, dance, and art. Stephen is intensely interested in images, film, and memory and manages an eccentric archive of Coby’s illustrious dancing career. As their last dance performance in Las Vegas approaches, Coby and Stephen prepare a final routine.
