Young German baker Thomas engages in a closeted love affair with Oren, a married Israeli man. These tender bursts of passion (ignited during sporadic business trips) are cut short when Oren tragically dies back home in a car accident. Traveling to Jerusalem in search of answers, Thomas ingratiates himself to Oren's newly widowed wife, taking up work at her café making cakes and cookies under a fake identity, becoming involved in her life beyond his expectations in this enthralling romantic drama.
