Emotionally scarred London chef struggles to keep it together in this hot restaurant thriller that takes place on one single night and was made in one single take.
Life at the upscale restaurant not only reaches the boiling point – we are more like inside a pressure cooker. Andy is the promising chef whose restaurant comprises his whole life. It is also his adrenaline-packed energy that leads us along on this wonderful one-take camera journey between fine dining and personal problems. And on top of everything, his old manager and an exalted food critic comes to dine. Naturally, much happens beneath the surface. Money, passion, and rivalry are three important ingredients. The star restaurant perhaps does not live up to what is seen on the polished façade. Wonderful acting performances in a drama where laughter and seriousness becomes one.
