If it was your family business facing ruin, would you let your head or your heart rule? If the only way to keep your dream alive meant destroying the tight-knit, loving unit you’d created, would you?

Monterey follows Paul and his partner Mira as they launch their Auckland café Monterey, hiring three young Samoan boys with no kitchen training and teaching them everything they know about hospitality. It’s a happy, nurturing family environment. But it’s not making money.

Over six years, Kiwi battler Paul and his Croatian partner Mira fight to keep Monterey open – finally bringing in a high-end UK chef to turn their misfortune around. But you can’t mix oil and water.

The result is heart-wrenching and poignant, a power struggle with many casualties and few winners.
