Feeling invisible in her bland marriage, Emma moves in with her son, Elliot, into his downtown LA loft. Elliot, a young chef, is facing foreclosure of his lackluster Chinese restaurant…and, he’s gay. Emma’s disapproval has made strangers out of mother and son. But the two need each other now more than ever, as Emma explores life’s indulgences--with the encouragement of a saucy new friend--and Elliot confronts his fears of intimacy. Food speaks for them where words fail. This auspicious directorial debut from David Au offers a fresh take on life, love, and food in the heart of Los Angeles.
