A headstrong Chinese-American woman returns to China when her beloved grandmother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Billi struggles with her family's decision to keep grandma in the dark about her own illness as they all stage an impromptu wedding to see grandma one last time.
The premise of this movie is based on a true story from Lulu Wang's real life: as the family in the film does, her family really did lie to Wang's grandmother about the grandmother's terminal cancer diagnosis in an attempt to prolong her life. The element of the story in which they use a family wedding as an excuse for everyone to come and visit the grandmother because she is dying was also based in fact. Wang had a great deal of trouble finding financiers to back the filming. American producers objected to the all-Asian cast and insisted that she needed to add prominent white characters. Chinese financiers thought the story was too American, and they also insisted on adding white characters. So in another attempt to draw attention to the project, Wang adapted the story into a segment of the April 22, 2016, episode of the public radio storytelling program "This American Life," which did result in Chris Weitz coming on as a producer and procuring other financing.
