Martha is head chef of an upscale restaurant. Not one for a lot of flowery speech, Martha expresses herself with her extraordinary cooking. She presides over a pristine kitchen with an obsessive attention to detail and precision. When fate lands her eight year old niece in her lap, Martha’s life takes an unexpected turn. Her headstrong niece and the flamboyant assistant chef she is forced to hire throw her organized world into a tailspin. Forced to come out from behind the wall she has built between herself and the rest of the world, Martha finds a new recipe for life.
