As World War II threatens their comfortable life in Hong Kong, young Joan and Emma Lew escape with their family to spend the war years in Macao. When they return home, Emma has developed a deep interest in travel and new experiences, while Joan has turned to movies and thoughts of romance to escape the problems of ordinary life.

As the girls become women, each follows a path different from what her family expects. But through periods of great happiness and sorrow, the sisters learn that their close-knit family—their parents, their independent aunt Go, and Foon, the family cook—is a source of strength as they pursue their separate dreams.

    " A growing-up story about two sisters and their multi-generational family. I did not like the narrative voice. I wished for a more personal tone. It was a good portrait of Hong Kong/ Taiwan. "
