Elders see the younger generations as eyesores because of their overly 'westernised' (wild/ care free) behaviour and poor moral's. Whilst the youngsters on the other hand, have no time for their elders, who to them seem belong in a museum. Sadly, this is a growing global phenomenon. It is the director's intent to tell this tale in a witty, comical manner and in doing so, hoping that this little slice of life will touch the audiences' heart.

It is a nice video and hope this movie can motivate everyone and it's like an appearance of my childhood in Malaysia. So lovely and sweet memories I ever had. Basically, this movie's main language that the actors/actress use is English then only comes to mandarin. I would really recommend this movie to everyone. I will buy and keep it if there is an original CD. Love this movie endlessly. Pride in being a Malaysian. The part where Sarah's grand father call his grandson 'Salah' is actually quite funny. ('Salah' in Malay means 'wrong'). This movie is promoting the recycle activity. And that's all what I can comment. Hope you guys enjoy it.
