Meanwhile, Dante will play as Mickey who is "an Asian-American who owns a run-down coffee shop in Queens. He was once an aspiring fine-dining chef whose culinary dreams and ambitions were derailed by self-doubt and depression following his parents’ sudden death during his senior year in college."

 

 

The story will revolve around Mickey and Avery's divorce.

 

 

"Mickey is finally divorced from his wife, Avery, of 15 years. Life has been hard on him, between overcoming tragedy and the elusive dream of establishing his own Michelin-rated Filipino restaurant. His marriage to Avery was collateral damage," said the social media post on Asian Persuasion's Instagram page.
