Ling Chiu's quirky short drama begins with a light-hearted assertion: "Fortune was always there; you can't be Chinese and not know about it." As she tells the sweet, complex and near-tragic tale of one Chinese immigrant family and their brush with disaster, she folds in sibling rivalry, romance, lost dreams, old secrets, family economics and Grandma's lucky encounter with an ill-fated squirrel, to arrive at a poignant conclusion. In the end, their true fortune may turn out to be their devotion to each other.
