Here is a short review of "First Cow" movie plot summary.
In the present day, a woman is walking with her dog when she uncovers two skeletons, side by side.
In 1820, Otis "Cookie" Figowitz (John Magaro) is a quiet chef traveling with a group of loud and aggressive fur trappers in Oregon Country, who harass Cookie for not bringing them enough food while scavenging. One night, he comes across King-Lu (Orion Lee), a Chinese immigrant on the run for killing a Russian man. Cookie allows Lu to hide in his tent for the night and watches him escape across the river the next day.
Cookie and Lu later reunite and spend several days bonding at Lu's shack. Lu talks about his past traveling the world and his desire to own a farm. Cookie talks about his ambition to one day open either a bakery or a hotel in San Francisco. Cookie learns of the first milk cow in the region, owned by Chief Factor (Toby Jones), a wealthy English man with the only proper house in the settlement. The cow's mate and calf died on its journey to Oregon, making it the only cow. Cookie reminisces about his days as a baker's assistant in Boston and tells Lu that he could use some of the cow's milk to make baked goods. They sneak onto Factor's property at night, Cookie milking the cow and Lu keeping watch from a tree. They manage to get enough milk to bake a batch of biscuits without being caught. While Cookie is unsatisfied with the result, wishing it could be sweeter, Lu points out that it tastes better than any food the outpost has and that it could easily sell for a lot of money.
They take their biscuits to the market and offer to sell them. When asked how they're made, Lu claims it's a "Chinese secret." The biscuits become popular instantly and they sell out their first batch within minutes. In the days that follow, lines begin to form for people to try their biscuits.
