Performer/writer, Anna Yen, in seeking to understand a family tragedy, unravels stories about her grandmother, her mother and herself. The film moves from China in the early 1900s, through Hong Kong in the 30s, suburban Sydney in the 60s, and into the present day. ‘Chinese Take Away’ tells a deeply personal story about strength, loss and transformation that resonates universally.
