Plot

Natasha and Matthew have both compromised their careers for love. All they have to show for such noble sacrifice is a broken down business and the bitter knowledge of abandoned talent. April and Tong are divided by the ocean, Immigration and warring ambitions. Hong Kong and Vancouver are worlds apart, and the rugged Rocky Mountain landscape is a different universe...where rules don't have to apply. The Quest - is for fulfillment: creative; spiritual; cerebral; and romantic. The Journey - is a subtly hilarious epic of mishaps and heartfelt moments. The Outcome–is one new relationship, and two free spirits.
Bif Naked, in her first starring film role, is "Natasha", a woman who struggles to explore her stunning voice as a celtic singer, without losing herself. Hong Kong star Sean Lau (aka Lau Ching Wan–The Longest Nite, Black Mask) makes his North American debut as "Tong", who likes where he lives and fears that in Canada his still unfulfilled dreams of making it as a singer will be buried forever by his bad English. His wife, "April", played by Theresa Lee (The Poet, Big Bullet), has the golden key–her Canadian passport–and revels in all the trappings of success that her workaholic lifestyle brings to her. "Matthew", played by Nicholas Lea (Vertical Limit, "Krychek"–The X-Files, Once a Thief) is a Buddhist, and a big "R" romantic. He's being a fool for love, and is having second thoughts about it. "Cora", "April's" inept assistant, is played by Françoise Yip (Rumble in the Bronx, Romeo Must Die). The Juno Award-winning Celtic band The Paperboys are "The Standing Stones", with Philip Granger (The Goon Squad, Wind At My Back) as the manager "Charles".
