Keld is in a rut. His wife of 25 years has left him. For sustenance, he eats his way through the menu at the local China grill. The owner talks him into a marriage of convenience with his sister from China and the unplanned-for happens. A delicate romance blossoms between these two damaged, fragile individuals, but a secret gives their relationship a fateful twist. A subtle and touching story of life’s diversity.
