After her father dies, a Hong Kong girl discovers she has two step-sisters, one an androgynous snooker player in Taiwan and the other a fashion vlogger in China. To settle their father's debt, these three must unite to run his hot pot restaurant. Meanwhile the three women have their own personal problems to deal with such as toxic relationships and pressure to get married. While secrets and lies abound, the newfound connection for these three gradually changes how each woman feels in this family film that runs on some winning performances spread across the generations and the Chinese diaspora to show that while family ties can hurt the most, they are key to understanding ourselves and gaining confidence.
