Sarah has always been in the shadow of her mother, Celebrity Chef Siti. When she tries to make her own mark in the baking industry, she is unexpectedly caught between two men yearning for her affections. Imran is the perfect gentleman any Malay-Muslim parents would approve for their daughter, while Edwin is an earnest Chinese vlogger who, as Sarah's brother blatantly declares, isn't 'halal'! To complicate matters, Edwin comes from a Taoist Chinese family which runs a popular roast pork hawker stall. And being the filial Chinese son, he is expected to marry a nice Chinese girl and take over the family business. Will Sarah be able to navigate through their differences? Or will she succumb to family and societal expectations?
Since making its premiere at the Singapore International Film Festival in 2020, the film has gone on to clinch the Religions Through Women's Eyes Award at the 24th Religion Today Film Festival in Italy.
