Brilliant satire about race, culture and living as an immigrant within a different society!
23 November 2017 | by anelia_kolevaSee all my reviews

Absolutely loved this charming and light-hearted satire!

A lovely family friendly perspective on race and living as an immigrant in an unwelcoming community. The daily challenges that the main characters face make for a touching tale that will make you laugh and cry.

As an expat myself, I can definitely relate on a personal level with the incredibly truthful way this film portrays the challenges of trying to immerse within a new and very different society.
