The chaotic multiverse film tells the story of a Chinese Immigrant in America who embarks on an epic adventure where she attempts to connect various versions of herself in parallel universe to restore harmony to the multiverse. Yes it may sound complicated, but EEAAO effectively presents an aesthetic joyride which glides between drama, thriller, science fiction and comedy. all at once.
This award season alone, the film has been awarded 158 recognitions from major organisations and events, surpassing Peter Jackson’s The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King which boasts 101 awards.
