The story line actually depicts the lives of many teenagers growing up n the chaotic city of Loa Angeles. Unfortunately so many teens actually live this nightmare with patents working and having no good role models to guild them day to day. The interaction and on-screen chemistry between Annie Lee and Philip Moon give the film a real sense and believability of a true father daughter relationship. Annie Lee's acting is well done, and she has so much potential as she continues to mature as an actress and develops her art.
The editing and story line are well integrated and flow smoothly from seen to seen without the sudden shift to other realities found in many other movies of this caliber. It follows the characters lives well and avoids viewer confusion. The move is admittedly long running, but the amount of information only helps the viewer understand the true challenges the characters faced in the movies story line.
