Does being gay or lesbian in China pose mainly practical problems? Andy, an architect, tells only his father about his sexual orientation. His father wants him to have a traditional family with a wife and child and to promise that his mother will never find out. Cherry keeps the truth from her parents and has arranged a fake marriage. Andy and Cherry share a strong inner obligation to obey their parents and are willing to arrange their lives as their elders wish. The film focuses primarily on their private lives, but it also addresses the illegal adoption market and surrogacy.
