In this funny, uplifting tale based on an actual lie, Chinese-born, U.S.-raised Billi (Awkwafina) reluctantly returns to Changchun to find that, although the whole family knows their beloved matriarch, Nai-Nai, has been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, everyone has decided not to tell Nai Nai herself. Instead, they schedule an impromptu wedding-reunion, uniting family members so that everyone can surreptitiously say their goodbyes. As Billi navigates a minefield of family expectations and proprieties, she finds there’s a lot to celebrate: a chance to rediscover the country she left as a child, her grandmother’s wondrous spirit, and the ties that keep on binding even when so much goes unspoken.
