A Film by Felix Wollner

Synopsis

ABOVE THE SALT

Guest Meier is every restaurant owner’s worst nightmare. He sharply criticizes his ordered food after just a single bite. The restaurant´s chefs Harald and Tim feel their professional honor is grossly insulted. Together with waiter Peter, they discuss how to put this “problematic guest” in his place, working themselves meanwhile into a rage. Will diplomacy triumph over barbarous brutality or is violence indeed a solution? And what does an instant photo camera have to do with all this?
