Medium Synopsis

A Korean American man meets his Chinese American girlfriend's parents for the first time. Drama, cultural struggles, and laughter ensue. Will she be Anita Ho?

Long Synopsis

Harry Ho, a 30 something struggling writer is set to propose to his actress girlfriend, Anita Lee. Their love began on their show 'Power Raiders' where he was a writer and she a pink raider in Los Angeles. Harry has quit his job to pursue his dream to become a feature film writer and plans to propose to Anita for her 30th birthday.

Anita, a traditional Chinese American girl invites Harry to celebrate her 30th birthday and to meet her family in Las Vegas for the first time. Drama begins when her traditional Chinese family find out that Harry Ho is not really a Chinese 'Ho' but instead a Korean 'Oh' - immigration messed up the spelling, so he goes by Harry Ho. Despite her parents' dismay, Anita loves Harry and begs for her parents to give him a chance even though he is Korean.

Her mother Mrs. Lee, a first generation mail order bride tries to convince Anita that Harry is not good enough, and since he is a broke writer won't be able to pay her dowry.

While things continue to humiliate Harry, his luck continues to downward spiral when Anita's younger brother Warren is accidentally injured by Harry causing an unlikely reunion with her childhood flame who has now become a doctor. Mrs. Lee who thinks her old flame is a better match secretly invites him to Anita's birthday bash causing Harry's surprise proposal to go awry. Disaster occurs and everyone's true colors come through. Will Anita become Anita Ho? Or is it over?

Director Statement

I never thought writing my frustrations could turn into my first film.

Production Notes

"Based on some true events" When her parents didn't approve, she told him to write about it. This later became the film, Anita Ho. "Based on some true events" When the director's girlfriends parent's didn't approve, he wrote his frustrations into a script.
