The Cakemaker

Thomas, a talented German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who has frequent business visits in Berlin.

When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking answers regarding his death.

Thomas finds Anat, Oren’s widow and insinuates himself into her life – and her restaurant.

The encounter with the unfamiliar reality will make Thomas become involved in Anat’s life in a way far beyond his anticipation. To protect the truth he will stretch his lie to a point of no return.
