A father and son confront each other over the past and present and discover that judgments do not prevent love. The son wants dad to drink and gamble less, while dad thinks the son needs to return to LA, find a boyfriend, and get on with his acting career.
But love wins out in this heart-warming comedy of Filipino-Americans in the Bay Area from local playwright Alvarez.
