A young woman learning to make her own way in the world has to deal with the disapproval of her family -- who, as it turns out, have some secrets they haven't been sharing -- in this independent drama. Mel (Lauren Stamile) is a law student whose father Harrison (Daniel J. Travanti) insists that she take a job working as a clerk at his legal firm. Harrison is at the home of his mother (Anne Jackson) recovering from a recent illness, so Mel doesn't have the heart to tell him that she's losing interest in the law and would prefer to take up cooking as her profession. Without telling Harrison, Mel quits her position at the firm and takes a job as a chef at a restaurant run by Lee (Nick Chinlund). When Harrison finds out the truth about Mel's new situation, he's not at all happy, but Mel soon learns that her father has been keeping an even bigger secret from her. Something Sweet was the first feature from writer and director Olivia Pi-Sunyer; the film was shown at the 2000 American Film Institute Film Festival.
