FULL SYNOPSIS

Tom Huang makes his directorial debut with this comedy-drama about a group project at an unnamed L.A university. Judy (Margaret Scarborough) is a blonde airhead; Rick (Kurt Kohler) has the social graces of a bovine; San (Huang) is an ace student struggling with his Chinese-American identity; and Tonisha (N.D. Brown) desperately tries to balance the demands of school while supporting her impoverished mother and little brother. As the film progresses, Tonisha feels overwhelmed by her responsibilities; Judy parties too much; Rick still has no social skills; and San finds himself torn between comely white chick Dana (Wendy Speake) and Chinese-American-and-damned-proud-of-it Grace (Mary Chen). Yet in spite of their respective troubles, this mismatched group bands together to overcome unsympathetic professors and demanding parents in order to make the best gosh-darned project of the whole semester. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
