East Side Sushi

Rating: 5 of 5 California rolls

It's a local (to me) story about a Hispanic single mom in East Oakland who wants to be a sushi chef. Super low-budget, self-financed by the writer/director. Loved the story and characters. Yeah, it's a predictable story, but as a very frequent sushi bar patron, and Bay Area native, it felt like a warm pair of socks.
