Writer/director Lee Isaac Chung based the film on his own childhood, growing up as a Korean boy in the American Heartland. In this scenario the Yi family, led by father Jacob (Steven Yuen), moves from California to rural Arkansas in the 1980s. Jacob desires to build a farm that will sell Korean vegetables to specialty grocers, but has many problems getting the land to produce, despite help from Paul (Will Patton), a kindly farmhand who is kind of a local religious nut. To exacerbate matters, Jacob’s eccentric mother-in-law moves in with the family.

“Minari” is in theaters and available through Video-On-Demand on February 26th. Featuring Steven Yuen, Han Ye-ri, Youn Yuh-jung and Will Patton. Written and directed by Lee Isaac Chung. Rated “PG-13”
