Jessica is a young professional in Chicago who is determined to assert her independence from her parents by buying her first place all on her own. However, she also wants her traditional Chinese parents' approval on the purchase. Since she wants to make a 20% down payment, she's limited her search to one-bedroom condos, but her parents will only give their blessing on a two-bedroom because of the better resale potential. Jessica must decide whether to stick to her guns or accept financial assistance from her parents if she's going to get into her first place.
