Ai-tsao (Li-li Pan) is a widow who is nearly 60 years old; her husband, over twenty years her senior, has been dead for nearly two decades, and Ai-tsao's life has settled into a comfortable routine of looking after her elderly mother and doting on her two adult children. Ai-tsao had a strong independent streak when she was young and struck out on her own over the objections of her parents, but she's not quite as willing to accept that her children have chosen lives different from her own. Ai-tsao slowly comes to the realization that her son is gay and struggles to come to terms with his lifestyle, but it's even more difficult for Ai-tsao when she discovers her daughter is going to be the unwed mother of a mixed-race child.
