Award-winning English language film for the whole family. Ben is a talented high school senior who dreams of going to art school. His strict immigrant father wants him to accept a scholarship to medical school. The struggle between his family's Filipino traditions and his own American dreams explodes on the night of his sister's eighteenth birthday party. Pressured by his family to attend his sister's 'debut' instead of hanging with his white friends, Ben gets more than he bargained for, including a showdown with a childhood friend-turned-thug, and an introduction to a beautiful woman who might teach him a few things about his true culture - and about true love.
