Spinning Plates is a documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who bring them to life. A world-renowned chef competes for the ultimate restaurant prize in Chicago (Alinea), while privately battling a life-threatening condition. A 150-year-old restaurant in Iowa is still standing only because of an unbreakable bond with the community. And a fledgling Mexican restaurant in Tucson struggles as its owners risk everything to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another.

"...Spinning Plates is out to prove that no matter how fancy or bare bones a kitchen is, running a restaurant takes a special kind of family."
Entertainment Weekly

"Spinning Plates enjoyably profiles a disparate trio of U.S. eateries ranging from the loftiest emporium of gastronomical innovation to the humblest mom-and-pop operation."
Variety

"Six food films at the Hawaii International Film Festival 2013...If you have time for only one in your busy schedule, make it Spinning Plates."
