Chef Flynn

Chef Flynn McGarry opened a supper club in the living room of his California home at nine years old, using his classmates as line cooks and serving a seasonal foraged tasting menu to wide-eyed Los Angelenos. As the years pass by, Flynn grows both as a chef and teenager and eventually outgrows his family kitchen and his mother's camera. Featuring over eighteen years of personal archival footage as well as intimate vérité, this portrait is not only the study of a rising star thrown into the media spotlight at an early age, but also a reflection on motherhood and what it means to give up one's own identity in furtherance of a child's passion.
