Alamo Bay is a 1985 drama based on the true events surrounding a disgruntled fisherman who terrorizes Vietnamese immigrants after they encroach on the fisherman's shrimping grounds. Shang (Ed Harris) is a bitter, emotionally crippled Vietnam War veteran who still harbors resentments about the war. Tensions quickly rise when a young Vietnamese immigrant Dinh (Ho Nguyen) moves to the area and begins working for the shrimping company owned by Glory (Amy Madigan) and her father. Shang, who is having serious shrimping woes, resents the fact that Dinh is able to save money and buy his own shrimping boat. Overcome by jealousy, Shang convinces some of the town bigots to pester Dinh and other Vietnamese who have settled in the area. Glory finds herself a victim of Shang's wrath because of her anti-racism stance against Dihn and other immigrants. Dinh and the other immigrants are faced with the decision to either flee their homes or make a stand against the racists.
