KIM'S CONVENIENCE is the funny, heartfelt story of The Kims, a Korean-Canadian family, running a convenience store in downtown Toronto. Mr. and Mrs. Kim ('Appa' and 'Umma') immigrated to Toronto in the 80's to set up shop near Regent Park and had two kids, Jung and Janet who are now young adults. When Jung was 16, he and Appa had a falling out, which led to him leaving home. Father and son have been estranged ever since. While the family continues to work and live, finding humour in the everyday tasks of running the store, they long for the day when the rift between Appa and Jung is mended and the family is whole once again. KIM’S CONVENIENCE is a comedy that is real, colourful and urban - a diverse landscape of people and places, with The Kim family at the heart of it all.
