The title character of this film is a chain-smoking Chinese grandmother with a small-time gambling habit. When a local fortune-teller predicts a most auspicious day in her future, grandma decides to go all in at the casino and lands herself on the wrong side of luck--and in the middle of a Chinese gang war. Set in New York's Chinatown, this feature debut of Sasie Sealy that premiered at Tribeca is both fun and exciting.
