Sarah, a Malay Muslim, is the daughter of a celebrity chef. In a bid to strike out on her own as a baker, she engages Edwin to produce her baking vlogs.
Despite the initial rocky encounters, they begin developing feelings for each other. But they face an awkward problem: Edwin’s parents run a roast pork stall. How do the two families bridge this cultural gulf?
Not My Mother’s Baking is not afraid of uncomfortable situations and brash dialogue that illustrate the characters’ callousness.
Instead, the film gamely employs the farcical elements to expose the ignorance and cultural insensitivities that are often swept under the carpet in Singapore.
