Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Jacob Cheung Chi-leung directs this family drama featuring former child star Petrina Fung Bo-bo. Fung plays May, a single mother who feels like she gave up her future to raise her daughter, Pearl (Cecila Yip), only to have their relationship sour once the child grew up. Out of spite against her mother, Pearl leaves for America and marries Allen (Lowell Lo) whom she never introduced to her mother. Years later, Pearl returns to her hometown with her young son, Derek (Alexander Roels), in tow, hoping to mend the long-standing rift between mother and daughter. Soon Pearl tries to set up her mother with a good-natured swim coach with a heart problem (Richard Ng). This film cleaned up in the Hong Kong Film Awards -- scoring prizes for Best Picture, Best Script, and Best Supporting Actress for Yip.
