Young San Franciscan Daniel Chang, living at home with his clueless, traditional mother. Desperate for a grandchild, she’s eager to see him married and spends much of her time planning introductions to suitable Chinese girls for Daniel. But when she recruits a new lodger for the downstairs flat, Daniel finds himself falling for Robert, the hot Southern boy who’s moved to the big city. Well, Robert’s not a suitable Chinese girl – but is he gay? And does he feel the same way about Daniel?
