Synopsis / Plot
Young restaurant owner Zinos is down on his luck. His girlfriend Nadine has moved to Shanghai, his “Soul Kitchen” customers are boycotting the new gourmet chef, and he’s having back trouble! Things start looking up when the hip crowd embraces his revamped culinary concept, but that doesn’t mend Zinos’ broken heart. He decides to fly to China for Nadine, leaving the restaurant in the hands of his unreliable excon brother Illias. Both decisions turn out disastrous: Illias gambles away the restaurant to a shady real estate agent and Nadine has found a new lover! But brothers Zinos and Illias might still have one last chance to get “Soul Kitchen” back if they can stop arguing and work together as a team.
