Tagline: It is never too late to fall in love for the first time.

Plot: Saving Face is the charming story of a young woman's complicated life and her pursuit of love amid the chaos. Wil (Michelle Krusiec) is a 28-year-old overworked medical resident living in Manhattan with no social life. Her widowed mother, Ma (Joan Chen), cannot understand why her desirable daughter spends all her time at work. Ma, meanwhile, appears to be a traditional Chinese-American woman still under the thumb of her ultra-strict father. That Wil and her mother are both products of the very insular, traditional (and, yes…gossipy) Chinese-American community in Flushing, Queens makes the usual family ties even tighter.

At a social function in the old neighborhood, one in which her mother insists Wil attend in search of a husband, Wil spots a beautiful young woman named Vivian (Lynn Chen), who returns her gaze. Shortly after, Wil and Vivian's paths cross again in the city. It turns out Vivian's father is Wil's boss at the hospital. A dancer taking time off to teach children, Vivian is instantly smitten with Wil and wants to help her relax and enjoy life a little more. Wil is equally smitten and soon is stealing whatever moments she can away from the hospital to meet Vivian for dates all over the city…except Queens. Wil shares the excitement of her new relationship with her
