The film, directed by Roxy Shih, follows Brenda Lee, played by Kelly Hu, who is diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. Facing her own mortality, Brenda is determined to track down the daughter Talia Carroll (Sylvia Kwan) she gave up for adoption as an infant. Brenda’s best friend, Meg (Patricia Velásquez) is by Brenda’s side every step of the way on her search to find Talia. Talia, having been afforded a privileged life by her adoptive parents, is initially hesitant to connect with the stranger who appears on her doorstep identifying herself as her biological mother, a moment Talia has been longing for her whole life. Talia decides to let Brenda into her life, and the mother/daughter duo embark on a journey to accomplish each and every thing on Brenda’s bucket list –no matter how wild. Along the way, Brenda and Talia work on making up for lost time with what little time they have left together.
