A dramatic fight. A traumatic realization: she can’t get pregnant. The couple separates. As a Chinese Quebecois she goes back to China, and tries to reconnect, “I am from here…” but confronts issues of displacement, cultural tradition, and family secrets. Still clinging to her old relationship, while dodging questions of being without child. After a while the pretence is too much. This is a portrait of Chinese life in all its contemporary glory and existential complexity, with some skillful performances providing a comic touch.
