JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the worlds greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite it's humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of it's kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiros sushi bar. For most of his life, Jiro has been mastering the art of making sushi, but even at his age he sees himself still striving for perfection, working 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. At the heart of this story is Jiros relationship with his eldest son Yoshikazu, the worthy heir to Jiros legacy, who is unable to live up to his full potential in his fathers shadow. The feature film debut of director David Gelb, JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is a thoughtful and elegant meditation on work, family, and the art of perfection, chronicling Jiros life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and a loving yet complicated father.
