A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

Dignified and quiet Mr. Shi (Henry O) arrives in Spokane, Washington to visit his daughter, Yilan (Faye Yu), whom he has not seen for 12 years. Yilan resents what she feels will be his meddling in the affair of her failed marriage, and finds excuses to leave her father alone in her apartment. In desperation, he begins to visit a local park, where he meets Madam (Vida Ghahremani), an older Iranian woman living with her son. These two lonely souls communicate perfectly, despite their language barrier. Yilan eventually is forced to relate to her father, and is surprised by what she discovers.
