Summary
The 85-year-old Jiro Ono is considered by many to be the world's greatest sushi chef. For most of his life, Jiro has been perfecting the art of making sushi. He works from sunrise to well beyond sunset to taste every piece of fish; meticulously train his employees; and carefully mold and finesse the impeccable presentation of each sushi creation. He is the proprietor of a 10-seat sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3-star Michelin review, making Jiro the oldest Michelin chef alive. Sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimages, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro's sushi bar. The film chronicles Jiro's life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and as a loving yet complicated father of two
