Three Women of Swatow
About Three Women of Swatow
“Swatow women are supposed to be fierce.” That’s what Grandmother tells her daughter.
Grandmother is a butcher and to her disappointment, her daughter’s a vegetarian, but to her satisfaction, her granddaughter killed her first chicken at the age of three. In this ferocious comedy, three generations of women grapple with their dark history, emotional inheritance and the legacy of mothers’ life lessons and daughters’ love lives. And there’s blood. Lots of blood.
