Abstract:

Mai and Dwayne were refugee children in Vietnam when Harold and Dee Williams, an African-American couple living in Los Angeles, adopted them. Now that the children are adults, they remain close to their parents, especially Dwayne. Mai announces that she's located their birth mother, Thahn, and she's flying her to L.A. Dee takes the news hard: she sees herself being replaced. Harold is more sanguine, and Dwayne pretends to be indifferent. When Thahn arrives, tensions reach the breaking point between everyone.
