In 2009, the three-Michelin-stars French chef Michel Bras decides to hands his restaurant over to his son Sebastien, who has been working with him for 15 years. Step up to the plate tells the story of these extraordinary dishes prepared by a father and a son, in the hilly landscape of Aubrac region. We follow this gastronomic transmission, and enter intimately in their family ties. Between Jonathan Nossiter's Mondovino and Raymond Depardon's La Vie Moderne, this documentary draws a moving and joyful portrait of this outstanding family devoted to the Haute Cuisine for three generations...
