About the Film


Dir. Ofir Raul Graizer
105 min | Germany/Israel | 2017
English, Hebrew, and German with English Subtitles

German baker Tomas’ affair with Israeli businessman Oren ends abruptly when Oren dies. Without time to process, Tomas travels to Jerusalem, and finds work in a cafe run by his lover’s widow, Anat, but keeps his identity a secret. Both mourning the same man, they stave off loneliness by finding common cause in the kitchen: Anat’s menu springs to life with mouthwatering cakes, pastries, and glossy confections. Business booms, but the newfound attention exposes rifts between Israel and Germany, secular and religious, and gay and straight.
