As the employees at a London restaurant prepare for the arrival of a high-profile Hollywood actor, it quickly becomes apparent that the five women working to make this important meal a success suffer form delusions of grandeur. In the eye of most customers they're three waitresses, a cook, and a dishwasher, but ask these dejected young workers to describe themselves and chances are you'll get an ear-full. Whether discussing weighty issues of love and art, attempting to capture a rat, or contending with a kitchen coup d'état, the workers at this restaurant are always up to something behind the scenes. Later tonight, a famous Hollywood movie star is set to dine at the restaurant, a revelation that sends each one of the imaginative workers into a tailspin of anticipation. Neve Campbell, Shirley Henderson, and Danny Huston star in a film from writer/director Oliver Parker (St. Trinians, An Ideal Husband).
