The search for a previous acquaintance from Shanghai leads a Chinese chef to a remote Finnish village with his young son. While looking for his friend, he is offered accommodation at a local cafe in return for his help in the kitchen.

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
