With the women's networking and their mutual support through food traditions, they discover how to be more assertive, liberating themselves rather than enduring seemingly grim fates. Through the presentation of food, the eating of the food and the kitchen as the site of creativity, the mothers learn to break their silence, retell their experiences of survival and share their past mistakes with their Chinese American daughters, hoping to pass their strength and wisdom on to the next generation through food traditions.
