Japanese tourist Tokio comes to Hong Kong looking for good food. When he stumbles upon 15-year-old Wai, a Chinese girl caring for her ill grandma, she invites him for a home-cooked meal. A bond grows between them– but Wai’s family is soon off for Canada.  Tender look at how Asian cultures differ, and how pop culture is erasing ancient traditions.
