A young video camera-wielding Japanese tourist traveling alone in Hong Kong pursues a tentative relationship with a Chinese teenager planning 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 and the clash between Asian cultural identities are explored with warmth, charm and humor.
