The Satos, a Japanese couple, operate a small hide-away of a Chinese restaurant, the Jinan House, in central Tokyo. Hatsue, the wife, was born in 1925 in Jinan, in the Chinese province of Shandong, where she lived until 1948. She was trained during her youth in traditional Shandong cuisine, a cuisine that was largely destroyed during the Cultural Revolution. The Satos are recognized as masters of Shandong cuisine by the Chinese government, and they are invited to China every year to teach the cuisine to local chefs. In 2002 the Satos face a turning point in their lives.
