Writer/director Ching C. Ip makes her filmmaking debut with the road movie See You Off to the Edge of Town, about a Chinese-American family reuniting in Los Angeles after a long time of separation. Matriarch Suyin Kwan (Zhu Xi Juan) is the nagging-mother type while Huan Kwan (played by Hong Kong producer K.K. Wong) is her quiet, reserved husband.
