Casper is an acclaimed chef with a family life that seems as decaying
as his artistic freedom. Those frustrations boil over into a raucous
viral-videoed public confrontation against a restaurant critic who
panned his cooking of food that his boss ordered him to make against his
instincts. Now with his career ruined, Carl's ex-wife offers an
unorthodox solution in Miami: refit an old food truck to offer quality
cooking on his own terms. Now with his young son, Percy, and old
colleague, Martin, helping, Carl takes a working trip across America
with that truck to rediscover his gastronomic passion. With Percy's tech
savvy and Martin's enthusiasm, Carl finds that he is creating a
traveling sensation on the way home. In doing so, Carl discovers he is
serving up more than simply food, but also a deeper connection with his
life and his family that is truly delicious in its own way.
