    Destined to work as a low-level dishwasher in a greasy diner, Max’s dreams of becoming a professional chef take one step closer to reality when he is accepted into a prestigious cooking academy. Secretly staying late after work in order to perfect his craft, he soon finds improvement doesn’t come as easily as anticipated. Hopeless, it isn’t until an unlikely alliance is forged with Kyla, a guileless, young prostitute from the area that the solution is revealed: her culinary expertise in exchange for the regular meals he provides.
