Storyline

Emma only knows one way how to add spice to her life... by squirting it from a bottle of hot sauce. The rest of her life is cushy but bland: scrambled egg whites, decaffeinated coffee and her husband, Ray. She's had enough and runs away from home. Her estranged son, Elliot, finds her lurking outside his restaurant with suitcase in hand. They try to start over again as mother and son in this odd-couple living situation, but she's old-fashioned, and he's gay. Between them are years of awkward moments and unspoken tensions. Feeling lonely, Emma accidentally befriends the lady next door who's so eccentric that Emma's way over her head. Meanwhile, a passionate encounter with a man in a bar turns Elliot's fear of commitment on its head. With dumplings, dessert, whiskey, and even Ecstasy in front of them, will they give in to their indulgences? And can mother and son reconcile while struggling to discover their own appetites for life? Written by Au Films

A cute film
8 August 2015 | by dingaohomeSee all my reviews

Okay IMDb you need to fix your rating system. It's a very sweet down to earth life film that doesn't try to be anything more than it is. It has very funny moments and awkward ones. You will enjoy it a lot more if you don't put everything under the microscope.

Shannon Omi played the role very well and it was very impressive to see an older Asian woman as the main character. I enjoyed watching Emma's journey of discovering/reinventing herself and breaking stereotypes as an Asian woman. Overall it was well developed with solid characters and good watch for anyone who wants to try something outside the mainstream.
