Mrs. Nu is a domineering matriarch who runs her three-generational household the same way she runs her successful crab noodle soup stall. In short, she runs a tight ship in all aspects of life. However, when three generations live under one roof, sparks are bound to fly – and not necessarily the good kind. Feeling suffocated under her mother’s oppressive glare, Nu’s youngest daughter Nhi decides to elope with her carefree boyfriend John. But the young couple soon realizes how unprepared they are for their future together. As time passes, the women of Nu’s house slowly reconcile, each learning about themselves and each other along the way.
