frustrating!!! Riona is such a cute doll, and the cinematography is rich in color saturation...and Riona's dance with her boyfriend on the hotel bed is cool ...but the plot is a bit too weak for a simple revenge premise...and seems to drag..almost becoming more like a soap opera answering the question "who's your mama?"
