What do men and women really talk about? The film is based on real stories overheard in one of the most expensive Moscow restaurant. The meeting place engulfs famous artists, bloated businessmen, kept mistresses and gilded youth into a whirlwind of its headlong life. The episodes are bound together by a story of two waiters – the fat one and the thin one. Both of them are desperately in love, one with his wife and the other with another man’s wife. And real love is born in the kitchen…
