One night after Bruce passes out on the front stoop of their apartment, Jeremy meets Su, a seemingly kind and mysterious old Chinese woman who gives him a Penzai tree as a gift. Su keeps a shop across the alley from Jeremy's apartment full of intriguing surprises for a young boy. When Jeremy goes searching for his missing father who has disappeared without a trace, Su seeks redemption for her failure to save her own son who died as a child and will stop at nothing to protect Jeremy from his father's abuse.
