Donya is a former Afghan translator for the U.S. government who now lives alone in Fremont, California. When she’s promoted to writing the fortunes at her job at a fortune cookie factory in the city, Donya’s loneliness and longing inspire her to send out a hopeful message of connection in a cookie.

MUBI's take

America is an adequate refuge but no star-spangled land of dreams when it comes to the modern immigrant experience. Recalling Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismäki with each cool monochrome vignette, this Sundance darling is threaded through with deadpan humor and performances of glimmering insight.
