Awkward teenagers stumble into a cute romance performed with charm by Zeno Robinson and Diane Doen. Will is an anxious, Black teen who wants to become editor of his school newspaper, so he is seeking a summer internship. Jocelyn, who is bitter about the likelihood of having to leave New York City, helps out at her family's failing restaurant, A-Plus Chinese Garden. The two form a relationship when Will is hired to work at the restaurant, but prejudice tries to break the couple apart. Robinson and Doen deliver the best qualities of a believable romance. They depict each character realistically as Will tries to control his anxiety and Jocelyn learns to become a more fulfilled person. Their endearing performance will be enjoyed by a wide audience.
