Storyline

Sarah has always been in the shadow of her mother, Celebrity Chef Siti. When she tries to make her mark in the baking industry, she is unexpectedly caught between two men yearning for her affections. Imran is the perfect gentleman any Malay-Muslim parents would approve for their daughter, while Edwin is an earnest Chinese vlogger who, as Sarah's brother blatantly declares, isn't 'halal'. To complicate matters, Edwin comes from a Taoist family that runs a popular roast pork hawker stall. And being the filial son, he is expected to marry a Chinese girl and take over the family business. Will Sarah be able to navigate through their differences? Or will she succumb to family and societal expectations? Written by Studio59 Concepts

Reflect on Interracial Issues!
11 December 2020 | by afiqahalhusSee all my reviews

It was such a light-hearted movie tackling important issues on interracial marriage/relationships in Singapore. One that many perhaps might deter from engaging a conversation with each other: the inner prejudicial and often, misunderstood classification that our society very much face in the community at large. The idealogy could perhaps passed on to generation and one might wonder, when will the stigma ends? Do we want our young Singaporeans to inherit a stigmatizing belief?

This movie higlighted it in a humourous manner with alot of reflection for their viewers. I believed Singapore is evolving and so does our local storytellers. We should be brave to lend a voice to issues that matters most. There is simply no room to whether it is a taboo topic to talk about. Singapore has changed and now, creating many platforms for several others to raise concerns regarding racial equality, interfaith, intrafaith and many other identity concerns for us as Singaporeans. Thus, the filmmakers would love you to reflect upon what is the meaning of racial equality and how do we practice it ?
