Love Goes Beyond Cultural Differences[edit]

In the moment when an automobile-assembly factory in Pennsylvania is bought by a Japanese auto firm, the American workers have to start dealing with the newly imported Japanese business culture. Workers are resentful of the new highly demanding management, but with time they begin to understand the peculiar sense of humor of the Japanese boss. In an attempt to examine the cultural clash that results from international business operations, the director aims to express that intercultural management may be conflictive at first, but with time, an intercultural understanding can develop that will allow for operations to function smoothly and efficiently.
