Keiko is the daughter of a ball-busting master sushi chef. The problem is that she doesn't have any balls to bust, so her father refuses to accept her as a worthy apprentice ("you smell like a woman, which adds to the fish scent"). Keiko flees from her home and lands at an inn, where she takes a job as a sushi server. But the white collar clientele set off her stubborn pride. These stupid dilettantes don't even realize that egg sushi is the best way to discern a chef's skill! Never mind that they can't even tell when the rice has been thumbed incorrectly, or if the fish is fresh. This leads to the most interesting scene in the movie, where Keiko gets all Jiro Dreams of Sushi on these assholes and teaches them a thing or two. The male Japanese ego being what it is, they don't take instruction too well. »
