Niklas (9-year-old Viktor Lykke Clausen) wakes up every night to draw the ever more precise contours of a recurring dream: he sees his mother stretched out on the road, overthrown by a driver. An accident that happened two years ago. Since then, the little boy is no longer talking and Thomas (Martin Buch), his father, has sunk into alcohol. Dion (Esben Dalgaard Andersen), a friend of Thomas, gets out of prison, but is expected by the Mafia aka “P’tite Souris” (Nicolas Bro) to whom he owes money …
he story evolves around two friends struggling to get their dream restaurant off the ground. They need money and Dion owes money to the Mafia Don (Petite souris). The thing is that Thomas is mounting his wife and can’t move on plus he is left to raise his son. He was the top sommelier who is dyslexic. Dion owes money to the mob plus got pregnant the female prison guard. It seems to me that trouble finds him every where. The actors are outstanding plus the chemistry in near perfect. It is hilarious at times plus there are detours left and right and a few surprises along the way. There the series feels like a modern western kind of cool. The French however copied it and named it Chef. Yes it is good but the second season of Chef is missing something. Anyway Bankerot means Bankrupt in english.
