Dreams, Symbols, and Synchronicity influence the lives of two strangers from different cultures.
The year is 1994 and California is having a recession. From the Good Fortune restaurant in San Francisco's Chinatown, aged scholar, Chow Lee Tong shares his wisdom and secretly passes it through the handwritten fortunes delivered to customer, Michael Hamilton. For months, Tong's knowledge guides the lives of two men from different cultures. Each man--Michael, and Tong's son, Wu--becomes immersed in journeys of change. Tong is the secret link they unknowingly share.
Tong's fortunes for Michael are vague suggestions left open to his interpretation. In contrast, Wu rejects everything his father says. By facing similar difficulties, each man learns how he must overcome his personal problems in order to find the happiness he seeks. In time, both discover that to fulfill their purpose, they may have to find answers by faith in the unknown.
Tong waits patiently while the men's lives become like mirrored images of the Yin/Yang symbol--identical, yet reversed. Good fortune awaits them, but first they must realize true happiness is less tied to outward goals than to inner awareness. Tong's gentle wisdom shows them the way.
