Plot Summary
Geraldine Tam (Laureen Chew) is the only one of her siblings to still live at home. Her mother (Kim Chew) -- who, after visiting a fortuneteller, is convinced she will die within the year -- would like nothing more than to see her daughter married. But though Geraldine has a boyfriend, she is reluctant to accept his proposal of marriage because she feels guilty about leaving her traditional Chinese mother alone. Despite their feuding, Geraldine and her mother become ever closer.
