May, a westernized Taiwanese bride-to-be, is getting married. May's mom is happy with everything, except May's white sandals. For May's mom, it brings a bride bad luck if she wears white sandals in her wedding. A traditional Taiwanese bride has to wear red closed-toe shoes, even though they wear a western bridal dress in white. May cannot accept this superstition, especially because closed-toe heels pinch her toes. To escape from this superstition, she asks her American husband David to play a trick on her mother...May's mom finally gives in. She lets May wear whatever she wants in the wedding. However, May's dad, who always stays away from the battle between mother and daughter, finally speaks. Dad's words changes May's mind. She comes to a compromise for her mom's sake and her own in the wedding...
