Generations, gender, and tradition collide as a revered Sushi Master struggles to preserve ancient artistry in a society obsessed with change. In pursuit of perfection, Koji inspires his brilliant protégé of a son, intimidates a parade of young apprentices, and discovers that in today’s world, even a three-star chef has much to learn. Set in a legendary sushi restaurant, this warm-hearted comic drama was a highlight of TheatreWorks’ New Works Festival.
Contains mature language.
