Junn is a Cambodian-Chinese mother mourning the death of her twenty-something son, Kai, in contemporary London. Previously unaware of Kai’s sexuality, she is surprised when her son’s lover, Richard, attempts to reach out to her. Despite an initially frosty relationship, as well as a language barrier – Junn speaks Mandarin and Richard knows no language other than English – the two attempt to develop a bond in order to grieve together for the man they both loved, sharing memories and learning from one another. With the help of a translator, Richard and Junn gradually break down barriers of culture and communication in this tender and perceptive drama about the notions of love and loss.
