A synopsis of the film reads, "Struggling to find fulfillment in relationships, blossoming filmmaker Sarah discovers that forgiveness is key to true love. Sarah has moved to New York City to pursue her love of filmmaking when she meets the man of her dreams. Charming, handsome and successful, Reece becomes her world. As their love story unfolds, Sarah is taken on a journey of heartbreak and forgiveness, by exploring her relationships both past and present.

Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, writer, Kon graduated with honors from Hunter College of The City University of New York with a B.S. in Film and Video Production. Kon is a director/producer who is passionate about producing films that have "aesthetic appeal and are thought-provoking, which are ultimately life-changing to each viewer."
'The Father's Love' is Kon's first feature-length film and it takes its inspiration from her own life as a twenty-something looking for love and adventure in the Big Apple.
Kon's brave approach has ruffled some feathers among some of her Christian peers, who are not comfortable with single women and dating. Implying that it is not very family friendly because it remains true to real life instances, since it suggests pre-marital sex and casual drinking. Other believers, such as actor Stephen Baldwin are not afraid to stand behind it because of its honesty.
The film has already been selling out at pre-screenings in New York and is being used as a ministry outreach to single professionals.
