Thomas, a young German baker, is having an affair with Oren, an Israeli married man who frequently visits Berlin. When Oren dies in a car crash in Israel, the bereft Thomas travels to Jerusalem seeking truth and solace. Keeping his identity a secret, Thomas infiltrates the life of Anat, Oren’s widow. He becomes involved far beyond his anticipation, and to protect the truth he stretches his lie to a point of no return. Exploring the idea that our social, religious, and sexual identities are more fluid than fixed, The Cakemaker is “a tender, tactile and just-sweet-enough story of hidden love, challenged faith and unwittingly shared grief.”—Variety. In Hebrew and German with English subtitles.
