Please note:

This show aims to highlight the struggles of citizenship, racial micro-aggressions and the clashing of cultural and family values. The story revolves around Thai / Thai-Australian characters but we understand the themes may be triggering for most people of colour or people of mixed race who are navigating a multicultural society.
