On leave from grad school, Jane Morrow is helping out in her uncle's fortune cookie factory. Though surrounded by her loving family and their close-knit Chinatown community, Jane feels like a colossal failure, wondering if she will ever have the guts to move on with her dissertation and her life. When Jane meets medical student Sutton St. James at her local noodle shop, sparks fly. Sutton stands at a career crossroads: surgical residency or stem cell research overseas? The first is what her father, former Surgeon General and "America's doctor" has planned for her, but the latter might help find a cure for her mother's debilitating MS. Sutton's only certainty is that she has no time for a relationship - yet neither she nor Jane can deny the chemistry between them. It's a picture perfect romance until Sutton's father's scandalous secret threatens her family and reputation. In her rush to protect Jane and the community she has come to hold dear, has Sutton turned her back on the only thing that truly matters?
