Every table at Quentins restaurant has a thousand stories to tell: tales of love, betrayal and revenge. There has been hope and despair sitting in the chairs. The staff who come and go have stories of their own, and the restaurant itself has had times when it looked set fair for success and others when it seemed as if it must close in failure. Ella Brady wants to make a documentary about the renowned Dublin restaurant that has captured the spirit of a generation and a city in the years it has been open. As Ella uncovers more of what has gone on, she wonders about the wisdom of brining it to the screen. Are there some stories which are too sacred to be told? Should the restaurant keep its secrets?
