Secret recipe? Check. Cooking crew? Check. Emergency situation? Uh oh.
With only days to go until Memphis’s annual “Hot Wang Festival,” things are heating up in Cordell’s kitchen. He and his crew are prepping to take home the crown when his boyfriend’s nephew shows up at the front door… Over the course of one weekend, the fate of the competition — and their relationships — is called into question. Will the crew make it to the festival? Will they make it at all? Christopher D. Betts (Trouble in Mind) is back to direct this 2021 Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy that celebrates the families we make and the risks we take.
