Summary
Ben is from a Filipino-American family who is soon to graduate from high school. Currently, most of his family is preoccupied with an elaborate coming-out party being thrown for Ben's sister Rose.

To their surprise, Rick and Doug find themselves having a great time getting a glimpse of Filipino culture, and Ben meets a pretty girl named Annabelle
