The young writer Chang-rae starts his day taking care of his cancer-stricken mother alone while preparing for the family a traditional Korean meal that he learned from her. Soon emotions and memories start to surface, taking him back to key moments when he faced his parents’ expectations and plans they had for him and stood up for himself. Before his dad and sister returning home, unexpected visit and encounters in his San Francisco neighborhood challenge his feeling of being the son of his parents. Will his culinary skills be enough to show it?
