Winner for Culinary Cinema Award in BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 2018
Chen Liang is a young Chinese illegal immigrant living in Japan. One day he receives a job offer meant for someone else. In his desperation, he pretends to be the intended recipient in order to get the job. He starts a new life living working at a traditional Japanese soba restaurant under an elderly soba master. The fear of exposing his real identity at any moment is very real.
