Anthony (Liu Chang) is going to study abroad, leaving his hometown of Dalian, China, to study finance at a university in Melbourne, Australia.
He leaves behind the woman he has long had a secret crush on – Ying (Bai Bai He), who is also leaving home to study abroad.
So Anthony heads off to Australia, while Ying travels to Tokyo to study sound recording.
But Anthony soon discovers that he has little interest in finance, and instead develops an interest in cooking – which intensifies when he meets a young Chinese woman who is studying to be a chef.
Inspired by his new acquaintance, Anthony decided to start cooking school – while Ying, in Japan, starts spending a lot of time with a young male artist...
Will Anthony’s new-found interest in cooking – and his new female friend – lead him to forget about Ying? Or could he turn his back on the culinary world for his childhood crush Ying?
The film is based on a hit novel written by Ma Liang.
