Ten-year-old Flynn McGarry transforms his living room
into a supper club, using his classmates as line cooks and serving a tasting
menu foraged from his neighbors’ backyards. With sudden fame, Flynn outgrows
his bedroom kitchen and mother’s camera, and sets out to challenge the
hierarchy of the culinary world. Before he was 16 years old, he had staged in
top restaurants in Los Angeles, New York, and Europe. Director Cameron Yates
creates a collage of Flynn’s singular one-of-a-kind childhood, and the
result is a fascinating portrait of a young star’s rise as seen from the
inside.
