Now adults, members of a tight-knit Canadian Chinese family recall their childhood days in Vancouver, B.C. during the 1930s and 1940s. A candid, yet affectionate portrait is drawn of family life and the collective Chinese community. Themes of tenderness and brutality, racism and loyalty, humour and heartbreak are woven into their experiences of that time and place.
