Said, the young heir to a small Syrian bar in Barcelona, is willing to regain his family's honour on a reality television show by facing off Mustafa, his father's old friend and partner who stole their falafel recipe and with it built a restaurant franchise called "The King of Falafel." Against him, besides his adversary, is Ibrahim, his own father, who will forbid him from taking part in the contest. But he will have the support of Amal, the punk rocker, feminist and revolutionary daughter of Mustafa himself. One recipe, two families - let the contest begin!
