An aging chef from Minnesota has his life turned upside down when a relentless filmmaker from Las Vegas tries to make the chef's onion rings world famous.
The best onion rings in America? According to a Washington Post food critic, they were in Worthington, Minn. The man who made the batter-fried circles, Larry Lang, is a Worthington native and operated Michaels Restaurant. The secret recipe for the tasty onion rings can be traced back as far as 1949, created by Larrys father, Michael. Having been to Michaels as a child, the legendary onion rings piqued the interest of Zachary Capp, a Las Vegas-based producer with roots in Minnesota. Co-directed by Molly Dworsky, a Minnesota native, and Dave Newberg, Ringmaster tells the story of Capp, both a filmmaker and a character, trying to vault the Lang familys onion rings to world fame.
