Once Sean Roberts realizes his worst fear of becoming his father is starting to come true, he decides he must pursue his own life far from his family and their restaurant, Captain Chicken. Sean devises a plan with his older sister, Catherine, to escape the family with his girlfriend Jessica, leaving Catherine the sole heir to the family’s restaurant and secret original recipe. After Sean’s patriarchal father discovers their plot, he coerces Sean to take his rightful place at the head of the restaurant. The longer Sean remains at the head of the family, the crispier his exterior becomes. Sean’s last attempt to break free of his family ends up consuming his life as he learns the hard way that family means forever and that some family secrets are best left alone.
