 Abandoned by her boyfriend after following him to Tokyo, Abby (Brittany Murphy), alone and desperate, discovers solace in an unlikely place: a ramen shop. After recognizing the joy food can bring to people, she decides to become a ramen chef and somehow convinces the extremely irritable ramen chef, who doesn’t speak a word of English, to teach her the art of ramen-making.

Showing: 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, 3/26

Hikaru (Dai Watanabe) quits his job at a design company to return to his home town of Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture after receiving news of his father’s death. To learn about his father and his reason for starting a ramen shop, Hikaru decides to pursue the art of ramen-making and reopen his father’s shop despite his lack of knowledge. Relying on his own childhood memories, he attempts to recreate his father’s beloved recipe.
