How to Use a Knife

In the raw, ever-pumping, kitchen of a busy Wall Street restaurant, George -- a master chef with a dark and tortured past -- rules over his crew with the swagger of a giant.  While grappling his  inner demons George has to manage two Guatemalan cooks, a nosy busboy, and an a-hole of a boss. But he forges an unlikely personal connection with the dishwasher, Steve, a mysteriously reserved  African immigrant.  Fast-paced and gritty, Snider’s pressure-cooker drama explores both the personal and moral questions that arise when the ugliness of the past boils over.
