Over a sixteen-year year span Master chef Hiroji Obayashi and his wife Yasuyo managed the day to day operation of their intimate Mom and Pop restaurant, Hirozen Gourmet, nestled in the unlikely corner of a West Hollywood strip mall. The film is a tribute to the subtleties of Hiro’s unique culinary vision and the perseverance it took for his family to transition from immigrant business owners to established restaurateurs with all the joys and sorrows that entailed.
