Everyone thinks career woman Cissy has an ideal life – except Cissy. Striving to be the “good girl” at home and at work, has left her on the verge of a breakdown. Her childless marriage to a handsome architect has gone stale, while questions about babies pepper every well-meaning conversation with family and friends. The cultural abyss dividing Cissy and her traditional Asian parents drives her to rebel against expectations and defy societal taboos... awakening something so primal it is both shocking and revelatory.
