BEIJING, Jan. 3 (Xinhua) -- "The Farewell," a comedy-drama film, is set to hit the big screen on the Chinese mainland on Jan. 10, the movie's official Weibo account announced Friday.

It revolves around a Chinese family which, upon learning that their grandmother has terminal lung cancer, decides not to tell her about the diagnosis, instead scheduling an impromptu wedding-reunion before she dies.

"The Farewell" won the audience favorite award at the 2019 Sundance London film festival.
