It is a summer evening in London. Alice (Shirley Henderson), a thirtyish aspiring writer, is running late for her job as a kitchen hand in a Soho café, the Stella Bar. Once she arrives to discover that the chef is drunk and incapable of working, and so, for a bonus, she agrees to be chef for the evening. The action of the film takes place over this one evening as Alice’s story intertwines with that of the waitresses - aspiring 30 year-old actor, Abi (Neve Campbell), 24 year old art student, Suzie (Alexandra Maria Lara) - the 28 year old Maitre D’, Madonna (Anna Maxwell Martin), and 48 year old dishwasher, Rita (Oana Pellea). Over the course of the evening, chaos gradually ensues thanks to rat infestations, arguments about music, art, love and desire, the arrival of a Hollywood movie star, Danny Huston (playing himself), and burnt food. In the meantime, we learn about the loves, loathings and aspirations of this group of women - who also learn surprising things about each other and themselves as the evening progresses.
