Summary from Kanopy:

In this funny, heartfelt story, Billi’s (Awkwafina) family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch–the only person that doesn’t know she only has a few weeks to live.

Golden Globe winner for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival.
