Anna has lost her memory, but she hasn’t forgotten how to cook. One night she shows up in a working class neighborhood by a Greek harbor. There she meets the unpredictable loner Roula and gets a job as a cook and a place to stay at his shabby tavern. In the kitchen, amidst the scents of spices and old forgotten recipes, Anna struggles to recall her past and rebuild her life. Her simple yet delicious food awakens memories to the locals, who in turn help her to reconnect with herself. The story takes an unexpected turn when Roula suddenly discovers Anna’s true identity.
