Two stories from different generations intertwine in this feature debut from Emmy winner Alan Yang (Master of None). One, a 1950s tale of a young Taiwanese man who leaves his home to find work in America, affects the other, a modern-day story of a daughter struggling to connect with her elderly father.
Pin-Jui (Hong-Chi Lee) is a free-spirited yet impoverished young Taiwanese factory worker, who makes the difficult decision to leave his homeland - and the woman he loves - behind in order to seek better opportunities in America. But years of monotonous work and an arranged marriage devoid of love or compassion leave an older Pin-Jui (Tzi Ma) a shadow of his former self. Unable to sympathize with his daughter Angela (Christine Ko) and at risk of living out his retirement in solitude, Pin-Jui must reconnect with his past in order to finally build the life he once dreamed of having.
