A prodigious chef mounts his culinary comeback, eyeing the most competitive street in America as a stage for his ode to the dying art of handmade pasta.
About The Film

When prodigious chef Evan Funke inexplicably walks away from his critically acclaimed restaurant his life and career are thrust into a dark vortex. Years later, still healing from the pain of emotional and financial ruin, Evan begins mounting his comeback, eyeing the most competitive street in America as a stage for the dying art of handmade pasta. Reconnecting with the best artisan pasta makers in the world, Funke finds himself fighting to fulfill his artistic destiny while battling the impossibly volatile LA restaurant industry.

Putting his years of work behind-the-scenes to good use in his feature debut, director Gabriel Taraboulsy gives equal measure to the artistry and passion that are crucial in the kitchen. Imagery that practically smells delicious offers a wonderful balance to Funke’s fiery personality as the chef strives to leave a legacy that will repair the mistakes of his past.
