Storyline

Chinese-Canadian Eve Eng was born in 1966, in the year of the fire horse. In Chinese culture, fire horse children are notorious for being troublesome. In 1975, nine year old Eve is looking for some meaning for her life, especially after her mother, May-Lin Eng, miscarries, and her paternal grandmother passes away, the latter event particularly concerning not so much for the event itself but the circumstances leading to the death. The Engs follow traditional Buddhist philosophy, primarily as a cultural tradition. While her husband Frank Eng is away in China dealing with his mother's burial, May-Lin doesn't stop their eldest daughter, Karena Eng, from pursuing knowledge of and eventual faith in Christianity, most specifically Catholicism. May-Lin sees it as a cushion for ensuring a good life and good after-life, as much of Christian teaching follows that of Buddhism anyway. Eve follows in her sister's footsteps.

Great Movie!
4 June 2014 | by cami-cav-89See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great! I'm a pretty harsh critic; I haven't come across a movie/show, as of yet, that has ever received an 8, 9 or 10. This was a funny movie; the little girl was so cute, she reminds me of my niece. If you don't like to read subtitles or can't speak the language, this might not be the movie for you. All Around Great Film! It's a cute family movie.

ALSO: I believe member named: Vecanoi, Misspoke: 'A person WITH a proper religion guide will become tangled and lost!'

Oh, almost forgot ~ I believe this film depicts the realism of Catholics trying to force religion down anyones and everyones throat; Especially those who don't want it.

GREAT MOVIE: It's A Definite Recommended Film!
