Hong Kong film wunderkind Heiward Mak returns with her latest feature since 2014’s Uncertain Relationship Society . Produced by Ann Hui, and based on the work of popular novelist Amy Cheung, this intimate family saga tracks three sisters drawn together from across China. When patriarch Ha Leung suddenly passes away, he leaves estranged daughter Acacia (Sammi Cheng) with his Hong Kong hotpot restaurant – and the revelation that he sired two more daughters in Taiwan and the Mainland. Meeting for the very first time, the sisters find renewed hope in their newly-discovered family and work to restore their father’s restaurant to its former glory.
