As part of an unusual farewell ritual, two siblings end up at a Chinese restaurant. Both feel guilty after the recent death of their mother and find it difficult to broach the subject. At another table, a father is working on his daughter’s homework. At the next one, a date goes wrong, and somewhere in between, the server loses her patience.
