FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE SHORT NARRATIVE

CHINESE DUMPLINGS

TFF 2007 Directed by Michelle Hung
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE CHINESE DUMPLINGS [TFF 2007]
Like any kids their age, sisters Lucy, 9, and Grace, 7, would rather be playing outside after school than practicing the violin in their living room -- especially since it is Grace's birthday, and they deserve a break! Lucy goes out of her way to look out for their interests, but in the end it is younger sister Grace who surprises everyone with her actions and illuminates how, in childhood, even the smallest moments define us in big ways.
