Vietnam's highest-grossing film over the Lunar New Year has made its way to the United States, and it's a kinetic romantic comedy of office culture, monetary windfalls, crocodiles, and true love. Oanh (Miu Lee) is the strict office manager for a giant national bank, where employees are forced to sign a contract prohibiting interoffice fraternization. What her boss and co-workers don't know, however, is that Oanh has been secretly dating junior employee Cuong (Do An) for three years. When they finally set a wedding date, they realize they must go public with their relationship. While each tries to force the other to resign, their bank is hit with a terrible crisis, losing 240 million Vietnamese dongs due to an ATM software malfunction in the nearby city of Can Tho. Oanh and Cuong make a bet: Whoever can recover the money first gets to keep their job; the other must quit. When they both reach Can Tho, though, they are unprepared for the wacky, dangerous adventures ahead of them, including the likes of two suddenly rich teenage lovers in the throes of ecstasy, a dog-obsessed laundromat owner, and the boss' obnoxious, horny, hashtag-obsessed douchebag of a son. She's the Boss is a hyperactive, colorful, and ultimately endearing tale about the compromises we're forced to make in life, love, and employment.
