Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Mina Shum
Feature Film • 98 minutes • Canada

Set against a background of richly drawn characters, each of whom are exploring their own fate and destiny, the film focuses on the story of Kin, a young divorced mother raising her 12 year old daughter, Mindy. Using a book of Taoist charms from the local Fortune Telling and Appliance Repair Shop, Mindy (Valerie Tian) hopes to find a missing turtle, help her single mom win the lottery and maybe fix up her mother’s love life, too. Oops. The charms might be working, but not exactly as Mindy intended. Long Life, Happiness & Prosperity tells three interconnected stories about family, love and hope, and always with a light and deft touch. Set in Vancouver’s Chinese Canadian community, Long Life, Happiness and Prosperity manages to cover a lot of generational ground. Great family film.
