Inspired by the life of Anthony Bourdain, Last Room centers on The Traveler, a man who wakes in a hotel that he can never quite seem to leave. Stuck in an endless loop within the room, The Traveler reflects on his life's path, from the sweat-soaked kitchens of New York's culinary underbelly to an improbable literary and television career that has taken him around the world, so far from home that it becomes harder to define what "home" even means.
