Yin and Lee are making dumplings in the kitchen of their restaurant. Yin is kneading dough. Lee is cutting meat and vegetables to make the filling. They are preparing the favorite dumplings of their daughter Tim Tim who has passed away three years ago. While they are cautiously folding the dumplings, they are thinking of the beautiful and painful moments. In all silence ... each with their own memories.
