Drama: A teenager tries to convince a stranger that he can get her to fall in love with him in twenty-four hours, unaware that she and her family are set to be deported the following day.
While high school senior Natasha Kingsley (YARA SHAHIDI) dreams of a career in the field of science, her immediate focus is on the fact that she, her younger brother, and their parents -- Samuel (GBENGA AKINNAGBE) and Patricia (MIRIAM A. HYMAN) -- are going to be deported from New York City back to Jamaica tomorrow. When an immigration official says he can't help but a pro bono lawyer he knows, Jeremy Martinez (JOHN LEGUIZAMO), might be her only chance, Natasha sets a last minute appointment with that man.

Unbeknownst to her, fellow high school senior Daniel Bae (CHARLES MELTON) has set his sights on her due to what he believes is serendipity. Unlike his older brother, Charlie (JAKE CHOI), Daniel has been destined since just after birth by their South Korean immigrant parents, Dae Hyun Bae (KEONG SIM) and Min Soo Bae (CATHY SHIM), to become a doctor and he has an important interview that could help him be accepted to Dartmouth.

Daniel finally meets Natasha in person when he saves her from being hit by a speeding car in a crosswalk and the two end up talking and learning something about each other. He learns that she's pragmatic, believes everything should be able to be explained by the scientific method, and that love is just an attribute humans have applied to the work of hormones.

Conversely, and being a poet at heart, he believes in romantic destiny and sets out to prove that he can make her fall in love with him in just twenty-four hours. With a little time to kill before her meeting with the lawyer, she tolerates his challenge, knowing full well that even if he somehow manages to succeed, she likely will have to leave the country she's been in for nine years the next day.

Since it features two teenagers as the leads, it's a decent bet teens will be interested in it.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
