Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, a married Israeli man. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem to find answers about his death. He becomes acquainted with Anat, his lover’s widow, who attempts to go on with her life and hold on to her small café in central Jerusalem. Thomas, using a false name, is taken on as a baker by Anat. The café soon flourishes thanks to his exquisite pastries. He finds himself involved in Anat’s life to a far greater extent than he had imagined.
