There’s nothing like a mother-daughter story to tug at the heart-strings, and this touching tear-jerker presents 4 sets of mothers and daughters for maximum emotion! In San Francisco, a group of aging Chinese women (Kiều Chinh, Tsai Chin, France Nuyen, Lisa Lu) meet regularly to trade familial stories while playing Mahjong. In a series of sixteen vignettes that spans generations and continents, this adaptation of Amy Tan’s bestselling novel explores cultural conflict and the often-turbulent relationships between four first-generation Chinese-American women (Ming-Na Wen, Tamlyn Tomita, Lauren Tom, Rosalind Chao) and their mothers. Bring your own mom, or your Mahjong partners for a good cry with us – we’ll keep the tissues stocked!
