Joan Chen is the 48 year old widow who finds herself pregnant. Father of the child is unknown. Wil (Michelle Krusiec) is the gay daughter who falls in love with Vivian (Lynn Chen) who happens to be the daughter of Wil's boss. Add to this, the patriach of the family who holds true to traditional ways and you get a delightful little story. Entertaining. There is even a sly take on Joan Chen's previous films in one of the scenes. Joan Chen herself is marvelous to watch. Fine acting, subtle mood changes from the perspective of a concerned mother, dutiful daughter and bewildered single expecting mother. The supporting cast and good script gave credence to the whole plot. Recommended.
