Wayne Wang's screen adaptation of Amy Tan's novel, which interweaves sixteen stories about four Chinese women and their Chinese-American daughters. The mothers all arrived in San Francisco after the Second World War and have gathered weekly to play mah-jongg ever since. When one of the women dies, Suyuan, they invite her daughter June (Ming-Na Wen) to fill her place. June is a young Chinese-American woman about to visit China to meet her long-lost half-sisters. At a farewell party held in her honour, the story of June's relationship with her mother is gradually revealed in flashback, along with the histories of three other mothers and their daughters.
