Encountering tensions on that side of his family, stemming from Japan’s invasion and occupation during World War II, Masato receives assistance from food-blogger Miki (played by Japanese pop star Seiko Matsuda) in studying Singapore’s signature dish Bak Kut Teh and experimenting with a fusion of cuisines that symbolizes “reconciliation” between the two countries and demonstrates the healing power of good food. In Japanese, Mandarin and Cantonese with English subtitles. (Singapore/Japan 2018) 90 min.
