Storyline

Chef and inventor Homaro Cantu helped put Chicago on the culinary map when he opened his first restaurant "Moto" and became a celebrity chef in his late twenties. A renowned inventor and social entrepreneur, Cantu innovated his restaurants and tackled big problems from Americans' love affair with refined sugar to re-imagining space cuisine. As much as Chef Cantu tried to change the world and make it a better place, a childhood filled with trauma and abuse shaped him more than he could have known. Filmed over a period of three years with remarkable access, INSATIABLE follows Cantu at a pivotal moment in his career and takes you on a dizzying and thrilling ride, in a story that moves from redemption and inspiration to tragedy and back again. Written by Brett A. Schwartz
