Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Famously rotund kung fu master Sammo Hung Yuen-ting stars in this bittersweet drama about Slim, New York City taxi driver who fled his native China during the height of the Cultural Revolution. Though he has only written home once during the sixteen years abroad, Slim ventures back home. Upon arrival, he learns that his sister is having a second child in direct defiance of China's often draconian birth control policy. His journey back to his village is pampered by his attractive, yet thick, cousin Jenny (Sylvia Chang Ai-chia) who has no sense of direction. Once he finally sees his family, Slim finds himself battling feelings of guilt along with feelings for his cousin. Unfortunately, Jenny is betrothed and her wedding is near.
