SYNOPSIS

Coming Home Again details a son’s love for his mother, as Chang-rae returns home to nurse his mother who has stomach cancer. Resisting his mother’s insistence for independence, Chang-rae busies himself with as many nursing tasks as possible. This Korean-American drama moves seamlessly between the past and present as it deals with memories and identity.

Themes of love, guilt and family are centrally addressed through food, literally and emotionally, as Chang-rae attempts to master his mother’s recipes for their traditional New Year’s Eve feast. The film is based on an essay written by novelist Lee Chang-rae in 1995, mixed with the director’s personal experiences of Asian family dinners and taking care of his parents.
