Premise

Song has stated,

"It also stars Lisa Edelstein from House and Robert Grant, who’s on Queer as Folk. It’s a great film - she’s a courier, a special courier, and she has a job with a businessman in China, (and) he has something that he wants her to deliver, and it’s me, “Song explains.” She has to deliver me to my mom in Hawaii. There’s a whole lot of twists and turns. I can’t say too much about it, but let’s say that my dad, he hasn’t been completely honest, and there’s some people after us.

“It’s fun; it’s a movie about forgiveness,whether it’s forgiving yourself or a friend or a parent, and it kind of shows two versions of that, which means her story and mine." [ [http://www.midweek.com/content/story/theweekend_coverstory/suite_song/ Suite Song] "midweek.com". Accessed 2008-02-16.]

The entire film was shot at at least 16 locations on Oahu, including Kahala, Waikiki, Chinatown, North Shore, Turtle Bay Resort. Honolulu Airport, a nightclub, hospital, and several street scenes. The production company (appropriately named) – Special Delivery LLC – is based at the Hawaii Media Inc. in Halawa Valley. The movie was the first by the Island Film Group and some 90 percent of the crew were local. Producer Francis Conway describes Special Delivery as a "Midnight Run-style action-comedy".
