Jimmy is 40-years-old but he has the personality of a young child. He shares a bunk bed with his ten-year-old nephew and his favorite thing is dinosaurs. He lacks any sense of charisma and he speaks his mind a little too often. Ever since his divorce he has been living with his sister and her family. His brother-in-law Tak thinks he is an idiot. Jimmy believes that if he can get remarried, he can move out and all of his problems will disappear. As he decides to start dating again, he falls for the beautiful and out of his league Ramona. And it doesn't help him that Ramona is in love with Jimmy's best friend Tim. Surprisingly, his luck continues to get worse when he leaves his nephew home alone one night to pursue Ramona. He ends up getting kicked out and losing his free room and board. Jimmy just cannot catch a break. WHITE ON RICE is an hilarious comedy about a grown man looking for love in all the wrong places.
