Unbeknownst to Wei, her grandmother persuades her mother to start searching for a suitable husband. Affixing Wei’s profile onto an umbrella, she joins the hundreds of parents gathering at the Guangzhou Marriage Market, where the only successful transaction is a first date for your child.

Torn between the conflicting expectations of her family and her life in the UK, can Wei navigate a path between them without losing sight of her own hopes and ambitions?
