SURROGATE VALENTINE is the SFIAAFF Closing Night film for San Francisco. Bay Area music stalwart Goh Nakamura plays “Goh,” a low-key indie rocker on tour with a sycophantic Hollywood actor. When he reconnects with a longtime friend (Lynn Chen), he is forced to make some bold decisions about his life. From the director of WHITE ON RICE.
