at the West Lafayette Public Library

83 minutes, Not Rated


The story of an 85 year-old man, considered by many to be the world's greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at the sushi bar. At the heart of this story is the chef's relationship with his eldest son , the worthy heir to his legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his father's shadow.
