Description: "White on Rice" is the comedic story of Jimmy, a misguided 40-year-old divorceé, trying to navigate his way through a new life in America and out of his sister Aiko's basement. Disgraced by his disgruntled brother-in-law Tak, the immature yet adorable Jimmy spends his nights searching for a new wife who shares his love of dinosaurs and geology. Things go horribly wrong when Jimmy falls desperately in love with Tak's niece, the beautiful Ramona, and vows to steal her away from his co-worker Tim. Meanwhile, Bob, Jimmy's nephew and bunk bed-mate harbors a secret talent that holds the key to rekindling the passion in his parents' marriage.
