The way to a woman’s heart is through...sushi!
Years of working in the food industry have made Juana, a working-class Latina, a chef of speed and skill. Searching for financial stability, she stumbles into a high-energy, male-dominated Japanese cuisine kitchen. The new atmosphere re-ignites her passions for food and life and makes her hungry to get mixed up in the flavors of this new world. She strives to prove herself as a female powerhouse and sushi line chef. As Juana, Diana Elizabeth Torres brings to life a story of overcoming and connecting worlds divided, fusing both food and cultures. East Side Sushi ignites a fire in audiences’ hearts and brings forth the rich perspectives of the overlooked and underestimated. It’ll please your palate, but still have you craving seconds.
