After getting abruptly fired from her job of over 20 years, a dutiful Chinese-American casino host turns her home into a birth hotel to regain control of her life.
Penny Lan is a popular executive host at the Bonnefidele Resort and Casino. Her most valued client, Shanghai billionaire Frank Yang, is in town with his 16-year old daughter Ming Ming, who is concealing a six-month pregnancy. In order to avoid scandal back home, he wants to hide Ming Ming in the US until the baby is born, and needs Penny’s help to find a high-end birth hotel. Penny admits that there happens to be a birth hotel operation across the street from her home, which makes her uneasy.
When the casino suddenly lays off Penny as a result of budget cuts, she goes to Frank and agrees to take Ming Ming into her home instead. The night that Ming Ming arrives in Penny’s home, an HSI bust occurs across the street, arresting her neighbor who is heading the birth hotel operation. The pregnant women living there have escaped and are hiding in Penny’s yard. Penny brings the women, along with Ming Ming, into her home.
