Miss Peony 牡丹小姐

Date: 6 May 2021

Lily’s grandmother was a beauty queen back in Hong Kong.

She doesn’t care that times have changed and that Lily lives in a new country and a new century. She sees that Lily’s caught between worlds, and wants her to enter the Chinese community beauty pageant, the highly competitive Miss Peony. She won’t take no for an answer.

And to makes matters worse, she’s a ghost.

Christy Tran stars as Lily, alongside Gabrielle Chan, Jing-Xuan Chan, Mabel Li, Charles Wu and Shirong Wu. Courtney Stewart directs.
