Plot summary

What is Minari movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Minari" movie plot summary.

The Korean American Yi family moves from California into their new plot of land in rural Arkansas, where Jacob (Steven Yeun) hopes to grow Korean produce to sell to vendors in Dallas. One of his first decisions is to decline the services of a water diviner and he digs a well in a spot he thinks will provide water - something that will come back to haunt him. He enlists the help of Paul (Will Patton), a local man who is religious. While he is optimistic about the life ahead, his wife Monica (Yeri Han) is disappointed and worries about their son David's heart condition. Jacob and Monica work sexing chicks at the nearby hatchery and argue constantly while David (Alan S. Kim) and his sister Anne (Noel Cho) eavesdrop.
To help watch the kids during the day, they arrange for Monica's mother Soon-ja to travel from Korea. David, who is forced to share a room with her, avoids her because she does not conform to his idea of how a grandmother should be. Still, Soon-ja attempts to adjust to life in the States and bond with the children.
The well that Jacob dug runs dry. Jacob is reluctant to pay for county water, but eventually is forced to do so. He runs into additional difficulties, such as the vendor in Dallas cancelling their order at the last minute. Still, he perseveres despite Monica's repeated desires to return to California. This strains their marriage closer to a breaking point.
Meanwhile, Soon-ja takes the children to plant minari seeds by the creek. She tells them of how resilient and useful the plant is, and predicts plentiful growth. David finally begins to warm to his grandmother after she teaches him card games, bandages his wounds, and soothes him to sleep.
