The first locally produced feature film by Prime Video in Australia is the brainchild of extremely talented performer Shuang Hu who has co-written and co-created Five Blind Dates. We truly love to see epic women getting their time in the spotlight.


What is Five Blind Dates about?

Lia is a 20-something Chinese-Australian woman who works in her family's traditional tea shop which she inherited from her grandmother. Lia is unlucky in love and she's struggling to keep the tea business alive, but a trip to Townsville to celebrate her sister's engagement turns everything around. 

Take a look at the trailer for Five Blind Dates on Prime Video.

During a family lunch, Lia is handed a prophecy that predicts the answer to her romantic woes will be revealed on one of her next five dates. With the dangling temptation of meeting 'the one' Lia reluctantly embarks on a series of dates organised by her family.

With her quest ahead of her Lia must juggle the pressures from her family to meet a suitor along with her deep desire to ensure the tea business doesn't go under.
