Single mother Juana Martinez has only ever worked at her family’s sidewalk cart for the sole purpose of feeding her family, until she finds a job in the kitchen of a neighborhood sushi restaurant. The new atmosphere reignites her passion for food and life and makes her hungry to get mixed up in the flavors of this new world. Despite the objections of her family, Juana decides to pursue her dream of becoming an expert sushi chef---to go where her heart tells her, not where she is expected to be. Faced with the obstacle of being the wrong gender and race for her chosen profession, Juana must surpass the skeptics to succeed where no one like her ever has. - Chris Metzler
