Synopsis / Plot
A young, video-camera-wielding Japanese tourist traveling alone in Hong Kong pursues a tentative relationship with a Chinese teenager, soon to join her family in Canada. Wai invites the young man to join her for a spectacular home cooked meal made by her 80 year old grandmother. As their platonic friendship develops, the subtle relationships between generations, upheavals in traditional Hong Kong society and the clash between Asian cultural identities are explored with considerable warmth, charm and humor.
