As an Afghan refugee, Donya feels just lonely in Fremont, an American town in California. After quitting her job as a translator with the U.S. Army, she finds herself in the doldrums. In an attempt to get her life back on track, she goes to work in a factory that makes Chinese fortune cookies. One day she decides to hide a very special message in one of the cookies. A gem that has much affinity with the earlier work of Jim Jarmush. Jeremy Allen White (The Bear) is endearing as the awkward car mechanic.
