AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On the day of the Mid Autumn Festival Chinese-born Crystal prepares a traditional meal of mooncake and crab for her new Anglo-Australian family. What no-one around her realizes is that Crystal has recently said goodbye to her lover, a Chinese artist, and she is pregnant with his child. As she prepares the meal with her visiting father, news comes that the plane her lover was traveling on has crashed. As Crystal tries to hide her feelings her step-daughter asks her to tell them the story behind the mooncake - a story that suddenly has great resonance with her own life.'
