RKS 2023 Film: Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival: “Dinner is Ready”

Korean-American Julie was to visit her mother Yeonhee in another U.S. city for a meal. A very special occasion but due to a rescheduled business meeting Julie can’t make the dinner with her mother and calls her to tell she will be arriving the next day. The brutality of fate shows its ugly face with Yeonhee dying all alone in her kitchen. Do the spirits offer Julie a second chance for a good-bye? Will her Korean meals have a special meaning in the future? It is impossible to avoid fate but a spirit can mitigate if not partially defeat fate and alter regrets.

This 15-minute short is directed by Eleanor Cho. It shows at Regal L.A. Live on 13May with “Parenthood”.
