Director Wayne Wang weaves a contemporary tale with an old-world fable of everlasting frienship. In 19th century China, Snow Flower and Lily are matched as laotong friends -- a lifelong bond between two women who rely on each other for companionship and comfort. In present day Shanghai, the laotong's descendants, Nina and Sophia, struggle to maintain the intimacy of their own childhood friendship in the face of demanding careers and complicated love lives. Drawing on lessons of the past, the two modern women must understand the story of their ancestral connection or risk losing one another forever.
