Before scaling Brokeback Mountain, Taiwainese-American director Ang Lee made this indie breakout about Wai Tung (Winston Chao), a gay man happily living in New York with his partner who stages a sham marriage between himself and building tenant May Chin in order to please his traditionally minded parents, then is appalled when they insist on throwing the happy couple a whopper of a wedding party.
