Struggling street food vendor Sentaro finds himself confronted with Tokue, an odd but sympathetic elderly lady looking for work. When he reluctantly accepts, it’s not long before Tokue proves to have an extraordinary gift when it comes to making ‘an’, the sweet red bean paste he uses in his dorayakis. Business thrives and a relationship develops that is about much more than just street food. Kawasi explores the lives of people on the periphery of Japanese society and reveals the truth behind their present lives.
Preceded by delicious Japanese foodstuffs in the cafe/bar! Please book a table.
