This film begins in New York City with a young fashion designer's assistant by the name of "Anne" (Kathy Uyen) being told by her fiancé "Kiet" (Peter Majik Nguyen) that he has accepted a temporary position in Saigon and will be gone for several months. This devastates Anne who happens to be a control freak and plans everything in advance down to the last detail. Realizing that his leaving is beyond her control she reluctantly decides to push back all of her plans. But then one day while video chatting with him she sees a pair of red high heels in his apartment and becomes insanely suspicious. So in order to rectify the situation she convinces her colleague at work by the name of "George" (Sigmund Watkins) to tell their boss "Tino" (Gigi Velicitat) that she is real sick--while in the meantime she takes the first flight out to Saigon to investigate the situation. However, rather than confronting Kiet, she decides to enlist the help of her friend named "Danny" (Don Nguyen) to infiltrate his inner circle and get close to the three female models Kiet works with on a daily basis. What Danny doesn't realize is just how far Anne is willing to go to get to the bottom of things. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that I have become very impressed with Vietnamese cinema lately with films like "The Floating Lives" and "Adrift" coming immediately to mind of some of the fine pictures having been produced within the last decade or so. But I wasn't quite expecting a good romantic-comedy like this one. That said, I especially enjoyed the performance of Don Nguyen who dominated every scene he was in. Be that as it may, while it may have had a couple of weak scenes here and there, I enjoyed this film for the most part and I have rated it accordingly. Above average.
