Luis, a scriptwriter who lives in Madrid and who is about to have a daughter, returns to Cocentaina, the village where he was born surrounded by the mountains of Alicante, in order to help his brother Kiko and his cousin Alberto to write a book about the cuisine of their family restaurant: L ́ Escaleta, which has just received two Michelin stars and is encountered among the 25 best restaurants of Spain and Portugal. Together they begin a culinary and emotional trip that lasts for a year, while the dream of writing the book turns into reality. This quest helps Luis reunite with his people while the spectator observes the authentic life that lies behind a two Michelin star restaurant made by the hands of a devoted family, always passionate about their work and determined to offer people the best of themselves.
