A Chinese-Singaporean chef, formerly working in Tokyo, finds himself in Okinawa begging a disgruntled old chef to teach him traditional Okinawan food. A top Japanese food critic finds herself in Singapore on an eye-opening discovery of South-east Asian cuisine. Both are also looking for each other after an emotional breakup years ago. Emotionally crippled by their breakup he searches her home-town for her but discovers instead the art of traditional Okinawan food. Through it he learns the incredible balance of two cultures: Chinese and Japanese – a balance they never had in their relationship. When she suddenly appears in Okinawa looking to find closure, he cooks and serves her their final meal. Through it she discovers what she had been yearning for all these years.
