The residents of Haven, Wisconsin, have dined on the Fine Chao restaurant's delicious Americanized Chinese food for thirty-five years. But when the Chao brothers reunite in Haven, the family's secrets and simmering resentments erupt. Before long, tyrannical patriarch Leo is found dead and his sons find they've drawn the exacting gaze of the entire town. The ensuing trial brings to light potential motives for all three brothers: Dagou, the restaurant's head chef; Ming, financially successful but personally tortured; and the youngest, gentle but lost James. The brothers must reckon with the legacy of their father's outsized appetites and their own future survival.
