Movie Info

An Asian-American woman with little interest in tradition, Kim (Bai Ling) has a fling with Daniel (Will Yun Lee), a younger man. When she discovers that she's pregnant, Kim marries Daniel out of obligation. Unwilling to be a wife or a mother, Kim leaves her infant to be raised by her own mom (Kieu Chinh). Kim's daughter, Genie (Kristy Wu), grows up to be defiant like her estranged mother, even dating black rap artist Michael (Treach), causing more tension in the fractured family.
