“A tender, tactile and just-sweet-enough story of hidden love, challenged faith and unwittingly shared grief that marks an auspicious feature debut for Israeli writer-director Ofir Raul Graizer.” Variety
During one of his many business trips to Berlin, Israeli Oren visits a café and falls instantly in love – both with its cakes and with Thomas, the baker who makes them. The two start a secret affair, which ends abruptly when Oren dies in a car crash in Jerusalem. Grief-stricken, Thomas travels to Jerusalem, and starts working at a local café, owned by Oren’s widow, who is oblivious to the real reason that brought Thomas to her. An impressive feature from first time director Ofir Raul Graizer.
Winner – Jerusalem Film Festival 2017
