Pressure Cooker

Philadelphia's Frankford High School isn't exactly the kind of place one would expect to find the world's next great culinary talent, but in this documentary from filmmakers Mark Becker and Jennifer Grausman, food enthusiasts discover why that concept may not be so far fetched after all. Their lives complicated by financial woes, broken homes, and abusive pasts, three Frankford High seniors find an unlikely ally in the form of culinary arts teacher Wilma Stephenson. Stephenson's kitchen isn't a place for the faint of heart, but for those who can take the heat she's the best friend an aspiring chef could ever want. As the citywide cooking competition for scholarships to the country's top culinary art institutions draws near, these three students will be forced to set aside the usual high school distractions of school dances and football games in exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime shot at living their dreams.
