    • Synopsis
    • When Bee returns to Malaysia for the first time in a decade, she introduces her conservative father Uncle Chuan to her happy-go-lucky British fiancé Benji. It is a complete surprise for Chuan and he immediately opposes the marriage, pointing to Benji’s lack of cultural understanding and comprehension of Chinese traditions. But unexpected circumstances ensue, and Chuan reluctantly submits to their union, on the condition that their wedding adheres to Chinese traditions. Part of that tradition is for Chuan to invite all his childhood friends personally. So the quintessential odd couple – Benji and Chuan, embark on a cross-country adventure on Benji’s motorcycle to deliver the invitations together!
