Storyline

Cross cultural and cross-generational challenges for gays, lesbians, and their parents. Janet wants to marry Cara who's fearful her Chinese parents will reject her if she comes out. Cara's parents are in town for a family wedding. But is fear of her parents' response Cara's only obstacle to commitment? Meanwhile, nearby, Jesse, at 14, has come out to his mom and tofu-cooking step-father the week that his own fun but flaky father, a gay actor, arrives for a rare visit. Jesse's enthusiastic embrace of his dad throws Norman, the step-father, into a crisis of confidence. A cooking lesson, a makeover, and a therapy session where the patient asks pointed questions propel the plot. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Highly recommended feel good film!!!
25 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on T.V. initially and enjoyed it so much I decided to purchase the DVD. I must say I was astonished to find out while watching the special features that the actor that portrayed Kara was actually heterosexual. Her performance of a lesbian women was that convincing.

Along with the convincing acting I found the plot and story line was extremely well thought out and moved along at a pleasant pace. I must say whether you are gay or straight the scene with Janet and Mrs.Nakano is sure to make you well up with tears of joy. I am quickly becoming a Natalie Sky fan as this is the second film I have seen with her in it.

I applaud the director for making such a moving and powerful film. I hope people from all around the world who are struggling with their sexuality see this film and have an easier transition when revealing their true selves to their families.
