One day, an aspiring civil servant is invited by his emotionally distant boss (Jiří Lábus) to dinner at a very special establishment. All the guests eat the same food, but it always satisfies them regardless of their tastes. His distrust of his superior and the charm of this bizarre establishment soon turns into an obsession. In this artistically ambitious television project, Kafkaesque and surreal elements combine to create an unsettling and immersive experience.

Lucie Bělohradská

In recent years, the prominent theatre and television director has moved into television with a series of adaptations of Hana Prošková´s literary crime stories about Captain Vašátko and the painter Horác. Her strengths lie in adapting successful stories, as evidenced by Chef Speciality, an adaptation of a short story by Stanley Bernard Ellin.
