EN - Yin and Lee are making dumplings in the kitchen of their restaurant. Yin is kneading dough; Lee is cutting meat and vegetables to make the filling. They are preparing the favourite food of their daughter Tim Tim, who passed away three years before. While they are cautiously folding the dumplings, they are thinking of the beautiful and painful moments. In silence... each with their own memories.

NL - Yin en Lee maken samen het lievelingsgerecht van hun dochtertje Tim Tim die enkele jaren geleden is gestorven. Kunnen de met zoveel liefde gemaakte dumplings troost brengen voor de leegte en het verlies?
