The Screen Guide

John and Jenny Wu are a Chinese couple who run a takeaway pizza shop in Sydney's inner west. Their four-year-old daughter, Emily, was born with profound disabilities. EMILY'S EYES is a poignant and compelling story of love and survival. At a time when tolerance in Australia is being eroded by a proportion of society frightened by inevitable change it is also a passionate plea for acceptance of a difference and a celebration of social change and cultural diversity.
