Chef Andy Jones is under stress: he is battling debts, addiction, and an imploding personal life. His luxury restaurant has just been stripped of two stars and all the tables are overbooked because of the holiday season. The pressure is already on when health & safety services unexpectedly show up for inspection. The mounting pressure is slowly but surely bringing the mood of his team members to the boil. How long will Andy manage to keep it all together?

Director Philip Barantini takes us on a breathless journey through the fascinating hustle and bustle of a gourmet kitchen. Shot in one single impressive take that condenses an evening at the restaurant into 92 minutes.

Philip Barantini, UK, 2022, 95 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Stephen Graham, Vinette Robinson, Alice Feetham, Ray Panthaki.
