When 48-year-old widow Hwei-Lan Gao (Joan Chen) informs her less-than understanding father she's pregnant, he banishes her from Flushing until she remarries or proves Immaculate Conception. With nowhere else to go, Hwei-Lan moves in with her grown daughter, Wil (Michelle Krusiec), a Manhattan doctor who doesn't want a roommate, especially since she's met Viv (Lynn Chen), her sexy young lover. So Wil does what any dutiful child with an expectant, unmarried mother on her hands would do: she proceeds to set Hwei-Lan up with every eligible bachelor in town.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It has the heart and spirit of a true romantic comedy, and a lightness of touch that you rarely see in a debut picture.
Fresh: [Chen] reduces the wattage on her luminousness to make Ma seem sympathetically homely without turning downright pitiful. It's an engaging performance.
Fresh: A laugh riot it is not. A sweet, true and, at times, universal love story it is.
Fresh: A first film with a deft comedic touch and a trio of charming stars.
Great Indie Flick
This movie is warm and absolutely funny! Not to mention the fact that the leading cast of women are drop dead gorgeous! I loved each characters part and the overall story and the soundtrack it great too. Wish I would have known about this movie sooner. Alice Wu made a enjoyably great film and the cast was amazing to watch. Kudos to them!
