The final 24 hours of the year scatter the lives of three hungry people in an over-satisfied city. A mouth-watering, yet dark drama about friendship, food, obsession and death
It's the last day of the year and everyone is counting the hours toward the grand night; Aya, a chef and a restaurant owner, is obsessing over a delicious fundraising dinner to save her dying friend's life. Daniel, a dying TV editor and a food blogger, is getting ready for his "last chance" experimental treatment abroad. Reli, a bulimic food critic, is running around town to finish her New Years' eve list. Oh, but reality has different plans. On her way from the fish market Aya mistakenly runs over an old lady, On his farewell visit to the hospital Daniel receives tragic news about the expected treatment and Reli realizes she did one critic too many. Thus, the fabulous fundraising Silvestre dinner unwillingly turns into a "last supper"- forcing them to confront their greatest fears.
Three years ago I lost a close friend to cancer. During the last few months of his life there was nothing I could do for him but cook. There was nothing he could do but let me. Food (cooking, eating and talking about it) became our shelter from the illness and created a blissed illusion that we can push death away.
