Plot
Zinos, a young restaurant-owner, is left by his long-term girlfriend Nadine. Zinos spends more time in the restaurant than with her, and she has just been offered a job in Shanghai. 
After she left, Zinos spirals into crisis mode and decides to sell his restaurant. The Soul Kitchen has certainly seen better days - it's not exactly buzzing, and Wilhelmsburg, the part of town where the restaurant is, is much too far away the hip, bustling atmosphere at the heart of Hamburg. 
Zinos doesn't know better but to follow Nadine - so he tries to sell the restaurant. And suddenly there are only three weeks to go before the closure. 
In these three weeks, pure anarchy breaks out in the Soul Kitchen: the chef cooks what he's always wanted to cook, a new DJ gets the guests dancing after their meals, artists exhibit their work - and the guests like it. Rumours of the cult Soul Kitchen spread right around Hamburg. 
At the very last party, Zinos realises it was a mistake to sell the restaurant. When he finds out it's going to be torn down to make way for a shopping mall, he moves heaven and earth to get the Soul Kitchen back...
