Mylinh has the chance to boost her career and make important connections in her new home in Washington DC – all she has to do is translate a simple dinner meeting between her friends’ parents – American and Vietnamese in-laws. When the two couples clash over the course of the evening, Mylinh must navigate and defuse the awkward and complicated cultural, national, and social politics between the two countries that make up her own unique identity.
