One of the metaphors, the Boomerang also boosted the motif of the movie and it revolved around all characters of the movie; it suggests that what a person puts forth returns back to them that is, what you give, you get back such as the love which Jasmin transferred to and got back from Brenda, her family and everyone.

These helped her to entertain the customers at the café and induce more sales and profits which lead eventually to a strong friendship between Jasmin and Brenda (Maslin 1988).
