Jiro Dreams of Sushi chronicles Jiro's life as both an unparalleled success in the culinary world, and as a loving yet complicated father of two.Jiro Dreams of Sushi explores the passion required to run and maintain a legendary sushi restaurant, and one son's journey to eventually take his father's place at the head of the culinary dynasty.
