This documentary depicts the food stories of people from Myanmar, now residing in the regional town of Coffs Harbour, Australia. More than 300 people from Myanmar have settled in Coffs Harbour. Some of these settlers have spent more than 20 years in refugee camps. They have fled their homeland with little more than their memories and their stories. But these memories allow their traditions to continue.
