A Korean-American family pursues the American Dream in 1980s rural Arkansas. David (a scene-stealing Alan Kim), a seven-year-old with a heart murmur, moves with his parents and sister from California to a mobile home in the countryside. There, his father Jacob plans to start a farm specialising in Korean vegetables, while his mother Monica frets about money. The arrival of Monica’s mother from South Korea, certainly not the grandmother David had in mind, complicates matters further. Gentle, funny and moving, coloured by a child’s viewpoint and based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s own story, it immerses you in the experience of a family straining to balance dreams with survival.
