“An excellent film, which deserves an appreciative and caring audience." - Niels Matthijs, Twitch

Like a Grimm’s fairy tale on LSD, with magical morsels of mouth-watering food in the mix. Female director Mai Tominaga’s second feature tells the story of a young woman (Kou Shibasaki) who loses her voice after a bad break-up with her rakish Indian boyfriend. Her process of healing involves returning to her hometown, tastefully called “Titty Mountain Village”. There, she reacquaints herself with a free-spirited mother who cohabits with a cute, talking pig. Inspired, and armed with her grandma’s secret recipe, she opens a very special restaurant...

For foodies, gourmets, and viewers who liked Naoko Ogigami's hit Kamome Diner, Mitsuhiro Mihara's Flavor of Happiness and Gabriel Axel’s Babette’s Feast.
