Matt is a ten-year-old computer kid who starts the day by shooting doom trogs and decapitating hell raiders, but doesn't cotton to the idea of visiting his elderly Chinese grandfather. He complains to preoccupied parents that the old man doesn't have a computer nor does he "talk proper English." But from the moment the groovy disco-dancing grandpa greets Matt with an unexpected "Yo, my main man, slide me some skin," their communication gap is far from typical.

Charming and hilarious, Just Smile and Nod turns the tables, and the turntable, on cultural stereotyping.
