Wayne Wang’s DIM SUM set in San Francisco is heartwarming and charming tale of a devoted Chinese American daughter’s undying love for her mother. Worrying about a fortune teller’s predictions, Geraldine’s mother plans for her untimely demise putting her life into focus and trying to visit China one last time. Both funny and sweet in equal proportions, DIM SUM is the precursor to Wang’s classic JOY LUCK CLUB.
