Van, the heir of a Vietnamese clan, returns home from the US the first time in 9 years for the move of his father’s tomb. The whole family is surprised upon finding him going with a young Vietnamese American named Ian. No one knows Ian is Van’s boyfriend and they plan to come out to Van’s widowed mother Mrs Hanh, who expects him to get married and have kids to fulfil the heir’s duties. To top it all, his grandmother, who has senile dementia, mistakes Ian for her grandson. While struggling to find the perfect occasion to come out, Van finds out instead that Mrs Hanh is seriously ill.
