Storyline

The contemporary story of Chinese New Zealand-born over-achiever Emily Chu, raised to believe she can get anything she puts her mind to. Even if 'anything' is at odds with her traditional Hong Kong born parents' wish for her to become a doctor like her two older sisters. Everything is coming up roses - until she meets James, a European New Zealander, and accidentally falls in love with him. But if her father finds out, she will face disownment. By the time Emily realises that she's sacrificing the respect of her family to follow her heart, James, too, has fallen irrevocably in love and there's nothing for it but to try and keep their relationship a secret. Happy endings don't come easy, if at all, but that doesn't mean they don't happen. But for Emily to get one, she needs to show James and her family that she has learned a lesson about the selflessness of love. Written by Anonymous

The whole WMAF movement was probably a trendy topic when this film was made.. luckily this mentality is fading. I just think any form of art that exploits this depiction of making a white man seem superior in interracial relationships is disgusting, especially when you realize this whole union of Asian women becoming submissive to white men was started by war when American and European men were stationed in Asian countries. It's clear the filmmaker was just trying to glorify her own fetish but she should've been smarter about it and at least switched the genders so it would be an Asian man crossing cultures with a white woman.
