Collection: Degree Films 2008

An evening at the Crazy Fish Sushi Bar: A lonely geezer courts the boss, an eye-catching sex blogger draws all the attention, a Japanese-Swiss family chews through a cultural conflict, and a restaurant critic painstakingly oggles each piece of food. Amid these episodes, Tobikomaki, a California roll, silently turns its laps on the conveyor belt. Its highest of existential highs is to be eaten. But the guests have other things on their mind and the irksome restaurant critic gets everyone into terrible trouble.
