After being abandoned by her husband twelve years earlier, Jen (Sylvia Chang. "Best Actress" of Hong Kong Film Awards 2002 - FOREVER AND EVER), raised her three sons alone. Using her mother's secret Hainan Chicken Rice recipe, she opens a restaurant to support the family. When she realizes her two older sons, Daniel and Harry, are gay, Jen is fretful that she will have no grandchildren if her third son, Leo, also turns out to be gay. Together she and best friend, Kim Chui (Martin Yan, famous Chinese cuisine TV Chef YAN CAN COOK) devise a plan to keep Leo straight by bringing in a French exchange student to live with them. She is Leo's age and her name is Sabine. Leo develops a strange but intriguing relationship with her, which greatly pleases Jen. However, things begin to crumble for her again when Kim Chui becomes "the toast of the town" with his invention of a new dish deeply challenging her Chicken Rice. Kim Chui becomes a national celebrity overnight, and Jen's self-esteem is threatened. Finally, their conflicts come to a head when Jen participates in a cooking contest with Kim Chui and other chefs from Singapore. Food unexpectedly becomes a medium that not only nourishes their bodies but also opens their hearts.
