Mary is 11 years old and has an insuppressible passion for cooking: she dreams of becoming a great chef.

Her grandmother, Emer, with whom she has a very special relationship, encourages her to make this dream come true.

But every path has its pesky obstacles, and facing them turns into quite an adventure.

Mary thus begins a journey across the barriers of time, in which four generations of women come together and get to know each other truly and deeply. A delicate coming-of-age story, sprinkled with irony.

'A charming, family-friendly production finds some touching life lessons' - Allan Hunter, Screen International
