Recipient of the best foreign language film in this year's Golden Globes, "Minari" is the story of a Korean immigrant family that is loosely based on director Lee Isaac Chung’s own childhood.  
After spending 10 years working in a hatchery in California, Jacob and his family move to Arkansas in hopes of starting his own farm, while his wife Monica works at a nearby hatchery to temporarily make the ends meet.  
To take care of their young children Anne and David, Monica’s mother Soon-ja arrives from Korea with rarities such as gochugaru [Korean chili powder], anchovies, herbal medicines, and minari [water parsley] seeds.  
Anne and David, who expected their grandmother to bake cookies for them, find Soon-ja strange, while the relationship between Monica and Jacob becomes strained as Jacob struggles to earn a living from the farm. 
Despite hardships, just as minari seeds that can grow almost anywhere, the family manages to hold on, and stay together.  
Actors Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, Youn Yuh-jung, Alan Kim and Noel Kate Cho portray the Yi family.
