At the height of his culi­nary career, chef Sergio Herman decides to close his famous three-Michelin-star restau­rant Oud Sluis. In the stressful period leading up to this, the seri­ously over­worked chef toler­ates the camera surpris­ingly often, sharing the whirligig of his life with the viewer. Herman himself remains rather closed, but the regis­tered hectics and the inter­views with his wife provide an honest and inti­mate portrait of a coura­geous worka­holic who tries to curb his enthu­siasm to spend more time with his family.
