In Manhattan, the brilliant Chinese-American lesbian surgeon Wil is surprised by the arrival of her forty-eight year old widow mother to her apartment. Ma was banished from Flushing, Queens, when her father discovered that she was pregnant. The presence of Ma affects the personal life of Wil, who is in love with the daughter of her boss at the hospital, the dancer Vivian Shing. Once her grandfather has promised that her mother would only return to Flushing remarried or proving that it was an immaculate conception, Wil tries to find a Chinese bachelor to marry Ma.Written by

Wil consistently wears her hair in a tightly pulled back ponytail, but shortly after her mother moves in she goes to visit her grandfather wearing an army T shirt. While she's adjusting the TV antenna, her hair is uncharacteristically puffed up with no explanation. All scenes before and after show her hair in the tight ponytail. Quite a bit later, there is a scene where Wil's mom sends her to the beauty shop to find out gossip. It's there that Wil is wearing the same army T shirt and getting her hair rolled up in big curls - the end result of which would be puffed hair! See more »
Hwei-Lan Gao - Ma:
Is that how you speak to your ma who worked nights so you could eat? Who stayed in labor without painkillers so you wouldn't turn dim-witted like your cousin Jimmy? Had I known you would grow so ungrateful I would have held you in.

Saw this film in San Francisco at the Asian American film festival, where it played in the Castro Theater to a sold out crowd. I thought it was an amazing job for a first-time director. Joan Chen is her usual brilliant self, though this time she utilizes her comedic skills. The other two leads in the film, Michelle Krusiec and Lynn Chen, are terrific too - can't wait to see more of them in the future. The music soundtrack was great also - had some great mix of stuff. It's a film you can bring your mom or your date to. Or a great film to see with the girls but this isn't just a "chick flick." I mean, who doesn't want to see a film with hot Asian lesbians having sex in it? Overall, very well done. Highly recommended.
