This is a romantic comedy involving a Chinese New Zealand woman, Emily, and a non-Chinese New Zealand man, James. Unfortunately the young woman's parents are rather traditional and want their daughter to become a doctor and marry a Chinese boy. Given that Emily wants to be "the next Spielberg" and has fallen in love with James, she decides that they must keep their relationship and forthcoming marriage a secret. Of course events develop that force Emily to finally tell her parents and to everyones surprise, her father reveals that he already knew, but he will give the marriage his blessing if James learns Chinese - to which he agrees. However, her mother is not so agreeable and James is getting more than frustrated. Emily finds that she must come to terms with the fact that to give love fully, she has to be true to herself and everyone she holds dear. Recommended.
