In some ways an exploration of two distinct, interacting cultures rather than a simple love story, Sons for the Return Home features Uelese Petaia as Sione, a Samoan studying at the University in Wellington, New Zealand. While there, he meets Sarah (Fiona Lindsay) who comes from a wealthy Caucasian family, and an attraction develops between them. Each brings cultural assumptions to the relationship that add humor and insight to their liaison. But when it is time to get serious and tell the parents about their love for each other, opposition comes from unexpected quarters.
