Dumbarton Bridge is a racial drama written and directed by Chrales Koppelman and marketed by the Bridge Partners production company. It was released in 1999. In the film, John Shed (Tom Wright) is a black Vietnam vet trying to stay afloat in the suburbs south of San Francisco. He is living with his white girlfriend Belinda (Daphane Ashbrook) and is relatively happy, though the couple has few friends because of their status as an interracial couple. Years later, his half Vietnamese daughter (Esperanza Catubig), a product of the time he served overseas, shows up on his doorstep. Belinda tries to welcome John's daughter, Ming, into their home but John's hostility toward her makes it difficult. Each member of the family must resolve their personal identity issues and decide how they fit into their family, before there is no family left to save. Dumbarton Bridge has a notable soundtrack, filled with classic, vintage jazz numbers selected by Orrin Keepnews.
