Thomas (Tim Kalkhof), a shy young and talented German baker, falls in love with Israeli businessman Oren (Roy Miller), a married man who makes frequent business trips to Berlin. Oren likes the tasty baked goods Thomas makes, and discovers that he likes Thomas too; soon they are having an affair. When Oren fails to return for another visit, Thomas learns that he has died in a car crash in Israel. Heartbroken, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death. Keeping his secret to himself, Thomas meets Anat (Sarah Adler, Foxtrot, Jellyfish), his lover’s bereft widow, who owns a small café in downtown Jerusalem. He infiltrates into her life, and starts to work for her baking German cakes and cookies. 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 of the Critics Prize at the Miami Jewish Film Festival. (Partially subtitled)
