DESCRIPTION:
Can Jacob Yi establish a farm in Arkansas so that his Korean-American family can realise the American dream?

Yuh-Jung Youn won the Oscar  for Best Supporting Actress for her role as grandmother Soon-ja.

Yearning to own a small patch of land and be more than a chicken sexer, Jacob Yi, relocates his Korean-American family (sceptical wife, Monica, and their children, David and Anne), from California to 1980s rural Arkansas, to start afresh and capture the elusive American Dream.

He decides to start a 50-acre farm to grow and sell Korean fruits and vegetables – easier said than done.  Amid sincere promises, cultural unease, fleeting hopes, and the ever-present threat of financial disaster, Jacob is convinced that he has found their slice of Eden in the rich, dark soil of Arkansas. Can grandma Soon-ja’s humble but resilient minari help the Yi family figure out their place in the world?
