The question asked by the parents:
Is he the perfect guy for their daughter?

Parents’ Mr and Mrs. Chu stalk their daughter Ann’s Facebook page and notice a boy who keeps popping up on her feed in photos and videos. Both parents figure out they’re dating and they begin to ask the question...is he the perfect guy for their daughter?

One night, their daughter asks them if she could bring a guy over for dinner. The same guy who’s constantly in her videos and photos on the Facebook page...his name is Edwin.
The parents prepare an elaborate dinner for his arrival. When arriving, Ann gets nervous and anxious and Edwin tells her that it’s okay and reassures her that everything will be alright.

When arriving, the parents start to interrogate Edwin ticking off their imaginary checklist as Asian parents asking questions like, what degree he studies, what’s his occupation and where he lives...with each question the parents try to give hints to Ann that she should marry him. Ann tries to constantly change the subject but the tension builds and builds until…

Hickey on her neck.

Mr Chu is not subtle and asks Edwin when she’s going to propose to his daughter which triggers Ann to reveal why Edwin is really here.

Edwin is here to support his friend Ann to come out as a lesbian. Mr and Mrs Chu finally get their answer to their question?
Mr and Mrs Chu have always known or thought they knew what their daughter wants and deserves but not once did they ever ask her what she wants. In this film...Edwin is technically the perfect guy in their eyes...but it’s not the perfect guy for her.
