Red Doors tells the story of the Wongs, a bizarrely dysfunctional Chinese-American family living in the New York suburbs. Ed Wong (Tzi Ma) has just retired and plots to escape his mundane life. However, the tumultuous, madcap lives of his three rebellious daughters change his plans. This clip features the lesbian storyline between one of the daughters, Julie and an actress, Mia.
“In Manhattan, the brilliant Chinese-American lesbian surgeon Wil is surprised by the arrival of her forty-eight year old widow mother to her apartment. Ma was banished from Flushing, Queens, when her father discovered that she was pregnant. The presence of Ma affects the personal life of Wil, who is in love with the daughter of her boss at the hospital, the dancer Vivian Shing. Once her grandfather has promised that her mother would only return to Flushing remarried or proving that it was an immaculate conception, Wil tries to find a Chinese bachelor to marry Ma.”
“Flavia is a thirtysomething married teacher. She has suppressed the memory of her adolescent lesbian fling with Jin and is stuck in a stifling marriage. A chance encounter in a supermarket with the playful and seductive singer Yip reawakens dormant feelings and she begins to think back on her teenage affair with Jin.”
I don’t actually know the proper title of this film, it may be Ground Walk, since the youtube videos are titled that way. Anyway, it’s a wonderfully sweet story about two girls in Hong Kong who meet and have a rather unique idea for a first date.
Update! The film is indeed named “Ground Walk”. Or at least that is its english title.
If anyone knows the title of this movie, please comment and tell me!
