Nimrod, an unemployed high-tech worker, starts working in the kitchen of a prestigious restaurant run by a brilliant chef, Dori, who is struggling to stay relevant and keep his place at the top of the ultra-competitive gastronomic world. The series explores toxic masculinity and the fragility of the male ego through the juxtaposition of the two male characters. The new cook is a family man collapsing under the weight of his responsibilities and his humdrum experience, while the chef is single, hedonistic, and self-absorbed, seemingly at the top of his game.


Episodes 1-3 screening during BJFF 2021. Remaining episodes available on December 5-12, 2021, to those who watched during the Festival.
