While on a summer vacation in Singapore, Rachel discovers that Nick is the heir to a family fortune. However, Nick’s mother, played by Michelle Yeoh doesn’t quite seem to like Rachel.
Throughout her trip, Rachel meets more of Nick’s family members and learns just what her boyfriend’s life is like.
Crazy Rich Asians will star many Singaporean actors, including Selena Tan, Pierre Png and more!
