El Molcajete, a traditional Mexican restaurant in downtown Mexico City, is the pride and joy of Maria’s grandmother, Dona Tere. When Maria’s mother suddenly passes away, Dona Tere mourns the loss of her daughter and stops working at the restaurant. The new chef changes the menu and introduces a modern, trendy cuisine. Maria must find a way to bring her grandmother back to the restaurant before the traditional flavors, ingredients, and cooking secrets are lost forever.
