Three Chi­nese women – Mari­et­ta, Wah So and Linda - sit making dumplings (dim sum) and chat­ting in a Chi­nese gro­cery in Liv­er­pool. The film­mak­er, who also hap­pens to be Marietta’s daugh­ter, wants to under­stand what drives these women. This charm­ing film trav­els with these women and address­es the issues of per­son­al iden­ti­ty and their attempts to assim­i­late into anoth­er cul­ture: their strug­gles with lan­guage, their sac­ri­fices and their values.
