That Sugar Film is a 2015 comedy about Jin, a lonely Chinese food waiter who discovers that someone is trying to send messages to him via fortune cookies consumed during his staff meals. At first Jin begins to question his perceptions, starting with attempting to get more sleep due to his idea that he is hallucinating the messages due to exhaustion. 

But after asking a co-worker to read the message as well, Jin discovers that he is not imaging the messages. As the tone of the messages shifts from dejected longings to existential questions about the futility of living, Jin decides that he needs to track down the message writer in order to encourage the writer that life is worth living. 

After his questions to his employer about the fortune cookie supplier are dismissed, he decides to setup a stake out where he will follow the fortune cookie delivery driver back to the source of the fortune cookies. He follows the driver back to his home address during his lunch break.

After finding a set of golf clubs in the back, Jin demands the truck be returned to the factory immediately to reprimand the employee in front of his supervisor.
