Hibiscus' (Suivai Pilisipi Autagavaia) obedience towards her Mother's rules - no going out and no boyfriends - gets put to the test in her final year of University. As guys start to go all out to impress Hibiscus, she asks her childhood friend Ruth (Anna-Maree Thomas) a.k.a Ruthless, to help keep her on the straight and narrow. Various Auckland area locations for this NZ/Samoan themed comedy. Well, at least the first half was a comedy, but the second half is a nominal drama with, thankfully, a satisfying ending.

Censor Rating: PG - Review rating: C+
