About the Film

Set in New York City, an ornery, chain-smoking Chinese Grandma goes all in at the casino, landing herself on the wrong side of luck…and in the middle of a Chinatown gang war.


“Lucky Grandma is a wickedly entertaining dark comedy, steeped in the colors and characters of New York City’s Chinatown.”

– IndieWire

“This isn’t a movie about money at all, but is instead a search for the dignity and respect the elderly deserve in a world that too often chooses not to afford it.”

– San Francisco Chronicle
