"Chinese Restaurants: Latin Passions" tells the story of the Chinese diaspora through its most recognizable and enduring icon - the family-run Chinese restaurant. Film-maker Cheuk Kwan visits Latin American countries of Peru, Brazil and Argentina encountering restaurant owners enthralled in their passion for cooking, soccer and tango. In Lima, a family doctor hosts Chinese cooking shows on TV and promotes the marriage of holistic Chinese medicine and health-conscious Chinese cuisine. In Sao Paulo, a Chinese couple escaped to freedom during China’s Cultural Revolution in the 1960s and now on the eve of the World Cup final, their son, Luis, recounts his passion for soccer and what it means to grow up Chinese-Brazilian. In Buenos Aries, a restaurant owner’s fervent ideal of internationalism is tempered by his own solitude while his family lives elsewhere in this planet, he lives his remaining years amidst the melancholy music of the seductive tango.
