A grandfather comes from China to visit his family in St. Louis. While there, he gives his grandson Dennis a treatment of Gua Sha. The authorities mistake the harmless traditional Chinese medical treatment for child abuse. The family goes through hell when the child is taken away by the child protection agency. Meanwhile, the grandfather leaves America because he finds that the living environment is really not suitable for him, as he feels that a simple, harmless treatment like gua sha which is so common in China is treated as child abuse in America. Furthermore, he cannot converse in English. An American friend of the father (Tony Leung) tries gua sha and proves that the treatment leaves painful-looking marks that are not actually painful or harmful at all. Finally, the child is able to return home and the family is reunited.
