Writer/director Alice Wu's romantic comedy stars Michelle Krusiec as Wil, an overworked medical resident living in Manhattan who meets Vivian (Lynn Chen) and begins an exciting new relationship. Trouble is, she's afraid of her widowed mother Ma (Joan Chen) finding out. All goes well until Wil discovers Ma on her doorstep--she has also been living a secret life and is pregnant and unmarried, which is not acceptable in their traditional Chinese-American community--and the worlds of family, love, lust and secrets come together.

Writer/director Alice Wu was born and raised in San Jose and earned a bachelor's and master's degree from Stanford. She directed the short film Trick or Treat (2002) and SAVING FACE is her first feature film.
