On a June evening in Paris, 13,000 people, dressed elaborately in white, will converge at a secret location for the annual DINER EN BLANC. In fifteen minutes the will position 4,000 tables, unveil miles of linens, crystal, sterling and epicurean delicacies. They'll eat, drink and dance until midnight when they will depart as swiftly as they arrived. The entire event is devoid of politics and commercialism. It is, rather, a mesmerizing intersection of food and fashion and a stirring display of the power of human connection and collaboration. The dinner remains shrouded in mystery. An anonymous committee of ten decides who will host tables and selects each year's secret location. This documentary reveals the evolution, orchestration and growing challenges of organizing the world's largest dinner.
