A new comedy about an interracial couple navigating romance in a racist environment.

Mai is an Asian-Australian playwright who soon discovers that ‘White Australia’ wants her to write the ‘ethnic’ play, but that’s exactly the kind of story she can no longer tell. Her boyfriend Kevin is a security guard who projects his own frustrated creativity onto Mai’s career; he gives her well-meaning and at times pithy advice. Whilst Mai is away on a meditation retreat, Kevin decides to submit a pitch using her name.

The fallout threatens both her career and their romantic partnership.
