Opening this weekend: Motherland, directed by Doris Yeung

Synopsis from the film's website:

After a long absence abroad, a young Asian American woman, Raffi Tang, is called home when her estranged mother is murdered. She becomes increasingly drawn into a web of deception and incompetence while at the same time dealing with her own grief. The ultimate betrayal leads to her confronting truths in her family that have been hidden for far too long. The American Dream can come at too high a price.

Confusingly, the film shares a title with a documentary by Jennifer Steinman about women who've lost children. Rotten Tomatoes, for one, can't seem to tell the difference.
