Two families, one from Japan and one from a small town in West Virginia, own businesses next to each other. Mr. Hayashi, a former samurai movie actor, has a hard time introducing Japanese culture through his video business. Greg and Julie Marshall run a Christian bookstore, but are having a hard time in a depressed economy.
Miki, the Hayashi's shy but sincere daughter, is trying to help her immigrant parents' business. Ian Marshall, charismatic and outgoing, has been waiting for God to show him his intended spouse. Although from completely different cultures, the families wrestle with the same life challenges, especially helping their children choose suitable mates.
As cultures collide, comedy ensues. Will old habits intervene? Or will love find a way through an unexpected source?
