Synopsis

Gut-busting laughs are on the menu in Fatih Akin’s hilarious follow up to his critically acclaimed hits Head-On and The Edge of Heaven. When down-and-out restaurateur Zinos attempts to follow his recently relocated girlfriend to Shanghai, he leaves his troubled blue-collar restaurant, Soul Kitchen, in the hands of his shady ex-con brother—a disastrous decision that puts the restaurant’s future in jeopardy. But if the brothers can stop their bickering and pull it together, Soul Kitchen might have one last shot at survival…
