Each year, the Chef, a sacred name and a monster in French gastronomy, saves a job in his brigade for a young delinquent on probation, giving a hand to an ex-convict in fond memory of his own youth’s mistakes. Romain, a 25 year-old locksmith whose sentence has been reduced landing in the restaurant Le Paris, speeds up the destiny of a brigade in full turmoil.
This is the story of his struggle to belong, his rite of passage towards a lightening rise to success. Among betrayals, conspiracies, family conflicts, thwarted loves, the Chef won’t be left unscathed.
