A tender and deep story about what roots us, MINARI follows a Korean-American family as they move to a farm in Arkansas in search of their own American dream.

Amid the instability and challenges of this new life in the rugged Ozarks, MINARI shows the undeniable resilience of family and what truly makes a home.
