Synopsis

Kenji has lost his wife and Josh has lost his mother, and this father-son duo is not finding it easy to communicate without her. In taking over the day-to-day care of his boy, Kenji finds himself relying on Japanese rather than Australian culture – and this is perhaps nowhere more apparent than in Josh’s lunchbox. At first, Josh craves nothing more than his mother’s OzEmite sandwiches, but eventually Kenji has a creative brainwave that gets the mourning pair’s lives back on track.
