Matreiðslumeistarinn André býr sig undir að loka ástkærum veitingastað sínum á Valentínusardaginn 2018, og skila sínum eftirsóttu Michelin stjörnum. Þetta skapar mikið uppþot í matreiðsluiðnaðnum, hjá starfsfólki hans og ástvinum. Þessi ástríðufulli fullkomnunarsinni sem fórnaði barnæsku sinni, barðist við gagnrýnendur og vann hörðum höndum að því að standa upp úr, ætlar skyndilega að leggja árar í bát. André afhjúpar í kvikmyndinni hvað tekur við, og veltir fyrir sér hvað fullkomnun þýðir í raun og veru.
