Program Abstract: "A loving comedy from the director of Eat Drink Man Woman, The Wedding Banquet and Sense and Sensibility. Mr. Chu is a widowed tai-chi master who leaves Beijing to live with his only son in a New York suburb. The result of this incongruous meeting of differing cultures is a warm comedy. Though his daughter-in-law has no use for him and everything seems to change too quickly, Mr. Chu responds the way he knows best, with the traditional tai-chi exercise of Pushing Hands." -- FACETS Multimedia
