In this charming documentary, experienced German barman Charles Schumann has decided to travel the globe in search of the best bars in the world. From Tokyo to Paris and New York to Havana he explores the secrets of bar culture, meets bar proprietors, and probes the hearts and souls of bars and their chroniclers. During these conversations we begin to realise that each bar is its own small universe, which is brought to life in a different way every time it opens.
