About The Movie:
Growing up, Romy (Wang) and Rick (Chau) spent the holidays working at their parents’ popular Chinese restaurant, the Golden Dragon. When Romy’s boyfriend Blake (Markian Tarasiuk, “Virgin River”) invites her to spend the holidays with his family in Vermont, she is thrilled that her parents let her off the hook, so she can finally experience a “real Christmas.” Her brother Rick currently works for the restaurant fulltime while he figures out his future, but secretly harbors a passion for cooking. When Rick and Romy’s parents (Sharon Crandall, “Pillow Talk” and Vincent Cheng, “The Romeo Section”) announce they will be closing the Golden Dragon for good just before the holidays, the siblings must each figure out what that means for their futures. Also impacted by the news are the landmark restaurant’s loyal patrons and staff: workaholic executive Veronica (Canning) who longs to be a mother; recent widow Jane (Niven), who is planning her first Christmas without her husband; Nate (Cupo), a single father trying to do the best by his daughters during the holidays; and helpful delivery driver Miguel (Jason Fernandes, “Cruel Summer”) who is hoping to secure a college scholarship. As each of them face the closure of the Golden Dragon, they discover what Christmas and family truly means to each of them.
