It’s Leila’s first (and soon to be last) day training in an elite restaurant kitchen.

Synopsis
Stagiaire follows Leila, an ambitious young cook on her first day training in an elite restaurant kitchen. In the course of one day, she endures hazing from the overwhelmingly male team, begins to make allies, and even impresses the Chef with her grasp on his cuisine. But a heated encounter in the walk-in puts her new position on the line.
