And yet he is haunted by the sacrifices made as a Korean immigrant family in America. He cooks a New Year’s Eve dinner for his mother that is what his mother always cooked for the family, trying to recreate the traditional Korean dishes he learned from her. Family sagas surface as they face down her inevitable death.
