Masato, a young Ramen chef, leaves his hometown in Japan to embark on a culinary journey to Singapore to find the truth about his past.
He uncovers a lot more than family secrets and delicious recipes.
Director Eric Khoo says, “I have always been intrigued by food and the role that it plays in our lives. As the noted food historian Ben Rogers says, ‘Food is, after language, the most important bearer of cultural identity.’ I feel that what food signifies goes beyond that, it defines who we are and shapes the lives we lead. On top of that, I also think that food is a unifying force. It has the power to bring people together under the most mysterious circumstances.”
"unabashedly champions a sweetness as delectable as the mouth-watering concoctions in each frame."
"What better way to bring nations together than over a steaming plate of delicious chow?"
"A tear-stained tale of broken families and healing recipes."
