When Oren dies suddenly in Israel, a heartbroken Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking closure. Keeping his connection secret, Thomas infiltrates the life of Anat, Orens widow, who owns a small café. Thomas starts to work for her and there he channels his grief into creating sumptuous German cakes and cookies that bring life and customers into her café.
