Israel | 2017 | 104 minutes | Ofir Raul Graizer

Opens July 20, 2018

Blessed with strong, sensitive performances from his leading actors, writer/director Ofir Raul Graizer crafts an indelible film about loneliness and yearning, filled with sensuous textures and mouthwatering pastries.

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.
