Movie Info

It's often said that love can conquer all, but can it bring together two young people divided by secret recipes? Audrey Chan (Lum May-yee) is the daughter of a family that has operated a diner in Singapore for several generations, zealously guarding their recipe for chicken and rice. The eatery's closest competitor is run by the Wong family, who have a rice dish of their own that they've made sure cannot be duplicated by others. Fenson (Pierre Png) is the scion of the Wongs and he's fallen in love with the beautiful but strong-willed Audrey. Audrey soon finds she's also attracted to Fenson, but can their romance overcome the bitter feud between the two rice shops? And what if one of the young lovers is just using the other to get at the secret of their tasty rice? Hauhap Gai Yun was written by Cheek (aka Cheah Chee-kong), who was previously the editorial director for MTV's Singapore affiliate. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
