Single mom Juana can slice and dice anything with great speed and precision. After working at a fruit-vending cart for years, she decides to take a job at a local Japanese restaurant. Intrigued by the food, she learns to make a multitude of sushi on her own. Eventually she attempts to become a sushi chef, but is unable to because she is the 'wrong' race and gender. Against all odds, she embarks on a journey of self-discovery, determined to not let anyone stop her from achieving her dream.Written by
East Side Sushi is a very heartfelt film that brings to film the struggles we face in our lives and the accomplishments we can achieve by believing in ourselves. A very creative film production with the simplicity of bringing everyday life to view. The actors were flawless with such great performance from every one of them. You will be cheering for Juana as she stands up for herself. Her dreams of success is not only self-righteous but to bring together unity between cultures. You will be so engaged and will leave wanting more. If you love sushi your mouth will be watering and if not, you will appreciate it's beauty. I loved every moment and hope to see more films from this very creative Writer/Director. Do not miss this award winning film!
