While preparing for her late husbandʼs second death anniversary, an older Vietnamese immigrant woman starts fantasizing about a handsome younger man whom she sees at a local Asian supermarket, while keeping it secret from her only daughter. After a big argument with her daughter on the anniversary day, the woman goes back to the supermarket to find solace in the connection with the man, not knowing that this time she is followed by her daughter. In the finale sequence, accumulated tensions explode to a dramatic yet hilarious confrontation between the three of them, creating room for reconciliation and making the woman realize what she truly wants for her new life in America.
