Favreau - who wrote, directed and stars in the picture - plays a chef named Carl who suddenly quits his job at a prominent Los Angeles restaurant after refusing to compromise his creative integrity for his controlling boss, portrayed by Dustin Hoffman.
Returning to his hometown of Miami, he teams up with his ex-wife (Sofia Vergara), his friend (John Leguizamo) and his son to launch a Cuban food truck. 
Sofia - on a break from Modern Family - is seen giving her ex sage advice such as, 'You're never going to be happy cooking for someone else.'
