Stephanie is a single mother with a parenting vlog who befriends Emily, a secretive upper-class woman who has a child at the same elementary school. When Emily goes missing, Stephanie takes it upon herself to investigate.
The story follows Rachel Chu (Wu), an American-born Chinese economics professor, who travels to her boyfriend Nick's (Golding) hometown of Singapore for his best friend's wedding. Before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy, he's perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia, and every single woman in his ultra-rarefied social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down.Written by
It was Janice Chua who suggested all of the filming locations to the filmmakers. She also wrote several Hokkien dialect lines in the script. See more »
In the very last last scene where Rachel and Nick are celebrating their engagement with friends and family at the top of the Sands hotel, TA Curtis is briefly seen in the crowd as one of the party attendees. Given that he is supposed to be Rachel's colleague at NYU and the party occurred with little notice, his appearance is odd. See more »
I chose to help my husband run a business and to raise a family. For me, it was a privilege. But for you, you may think it's old-fashioned. It's nice you appreciate this house and us being here together wrapping dumplings. But all this doesn't just happen. It's because we know to put family first, instead of chasing one's passion.

Only For Chinese People Who Think 'Driving' An Expensive Car Is Cool
It is 2018, the world is burning, overpopulation and pollution is rampant and there are people out tere who are more concerned about wearing a name brand dress or carrying a name brand bag and driving a very embarrassing and tacky SUV (yuck).
Those are whom this film targets.
People who do not realize they are shallow and superficial and it is not cool to fart your way through this life polluting, cheating, whoring and generally being an embarrassment.
I have visited China and Singapore and and and am embarrassed that shallow material goods is mistaken for fun and love.
