Follow her as she tracks down the winning Powerball lottery numbers of 110 winners on March 30, 2005 to a Brooklyn fortune cookie company. She discovers the myths and actual origins of chop suey, fortune cookies and take-out cartons and how they helped Americanize Chinese food. See the seldom-seen business side of the Chinese restaurant trade and how generations of immigrant restaurateurs strive for the American Dream for themselves and their children.
