Long is a gentle Vietnamese chef who lives in Warsaw with his precocious ten-year-old daughter named Maja. He works in a restaurant where his signature Pho dish is popular but when his boss sells the place to an ambitious developer who wants to serve different types of Asian food, Long has to adapt. Meanwhile, Maja clings to the memory of her Polish mother who passed away. She is afraid her father is forgetting her mother and looking at a replacement in a pretty neighbour who lives in the building across from theirs. As Long struggles to acclimate to new demands, he misses signs of his daughter's worries but Maja's rebelliousness and their closeness soon pushes him to change. Director Mariko BOBRIK gives a gentle and wry Asian/European drama of cross-cultural exchange and alienation and family ties in the underused setting of the Polish capital.
