A contemporary clash-of-cultures love story between Malaysian-born Sherman and Australian Monika as they struggle with the expectations of their friends and families and their own cultural traditions. In the process they are forced to examine their own attitudes and acknowledge with at times painful honesty the implausibility of completely extricating oneself from the past.
'While the story is relatively conventional, the writing by Nicky Marr is very good... Even the minor characters are not neglected, each given some interesting work to do and drawn with considerable empathy... an impressive script.
