1966: Sook-Yin is exiled from Kowloon to London with orders to restore honour to her family. As she strives to fit into a world that does not understand her, she realizes that survival will mean carving out a destiny of her own. 1997: Sook-Yin's daughter Lily can barely remember the mother she lost as a small child.
