A documentary about army cooks and how the everyday needs of thousands of armed stomachs affect the victories and defeats of statesmen. The field kitchen functions as a model of a world where food preparation becomes a fight strategy; a fight for great ideals standing on strong legs of the kitchen table. The film is based on eleven meals based on recipes from the Second World War till the war in Chechnya; from France through the Balkans to Russia.
