In the wake of his wife's death, Shi (Henry O) leaves his native China to find his estranged daughter, Yilan (Faye Yu), in the United States. There, Shi befriends Madam (Vida Ghahremani), an Arab-American mother who can relate to his feelings of isolation and culture shock. After having an awkward reunion with Yilan, Shi realizes just how far apart they've grown from each other.
