Food and love are the ingredients of a charming comic drama about a woman with no memory who starts a new life as a cook at a run-down seaside tavern.

When gruff owner Roula gives oddball Anna a job at his greasy spoon café he tells her not to broaden the fried food menu because “who needs a salad here?” It’s that kind of place. A few days later Anna’s whipping up mouth-watering meals and Roula’s telling his regulars “God sent her”. But who is Anna, and why does her food have such a powerful emotional effect on diners? And what about Kyriakos, a lovely old geezer who turns up out of nowhere and starts painting the joint? Angeliki Antoniou’s first narrative feature since the multi-award-winning Eduart (2006) is a most delightful dish.

Angeliki Antoniou has made shorts, documentaries and features in Greece and Germany. Her 2006 feature Eduart was Greece’s submission in the Foreign Language Oscar category.
