The centrality of religion to a close-knit Korean-American community permeates this 2005 video by writer-director NaRhee Ahn. A preacher's daughter (Susane E. Lee) tries to help her widowed dad keep it together, throwing herself into cooking and housework; her absence from school and church ignites gossip among her father's congregants and draws the unwelcome attentions of the youth minister (well played by Leonard Wu). When the young woman renews contact with a scandal-tainted friend (Derek Mio), the story becomes overwrought, challenging the skills of the attractive cast. 100 min.
