Q&A to follow with filmmakers
“A young Chinese woman experiences the joy, lust, and heartbreak of a relationship through the practice of her culture’s long-held tradition: the art of drinking tea.”
Told from the point of view of a mixed-race, second-generation Asian American woman, this film is an examination of the contradicting and confusing nature of biracial identity and the influence of tradition, culture, and a strong immigrant mother on a daughter’s experience with love.
