Thomas, a young and talented German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who dies in a car crash. Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers. Keeping his secret for himself, he starts working for Anat, his lover's widow, who owns a small café. Although not fully kosher and despised by the religious, his delicious cakes turn the place into a city attraction. Finding himself involved in Anat's life in a way far beyond his anticipation, Thomas will stretch his lie to a point of no return.

Winner: Best feature drama at Miami Jewish Film Festival, winner of the Lia Van Leer Award for Jewish heritage at the Jerusalem Film Festival and the Ecumenical Jury prize at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.
