There's conflict in the kitchen, as the forks, spoons, and knives argue over who's the greatest of utensils. The steel knife is looking for action, the grapefruit spoon longs for another function, and the sterling fork keeps touting its lofty lineage. Beneath the clash of cutlery lies a sensitive allegory about identity.
