Recently released from prison, French Chef Jacques pursues an obsession -- to leave his past behind and work for the great British Chef Victor Ellwood. He knows Victor had an affair with his mother and may even be his dad. Working for iron-fisted Victor is back breaking, but his existence is softened by the presence of a curious girl living in the downstairs flat. As he falls in love with her, he realises she not only has an aversion to restaurants, but food of all kinds. Is her eating disorder a force too resilient for anything, even love to cure?
Set in the near future, Gadget tells the story of a man jaded by the alienating, technology obsessed world he lives in.
