In this tender and moving debut, filmmaker Ofir Raul Graizer explores the connection formed by a gay German baker and the Israeli widow of the man whom they both loved.

Thomas (Tim Kalkhof), and Anat (Sarah Adler), the Israeli widow of the man whom they both loved, Oren (Roy Miller). When Oren is killed in a car accident, Thomas moves to Jerusalem and takes a job in Anat’s café. As their relationship deepens, and pressure from Oren’s religious family rises for Anat, Graizer delicately and gracefully traces the fluidity of desire and sexuality, the bonds forged by shared grief, and the challenges those can present to faith and family. As food is one way cultures can bridge such divides, so too can it be a way to mark separation.
