Jill, an American Jewish journalist, finds herself on assignment in Berlin to cover a technology festival. Having learned about the Holocaust at too young an age, Jill has developed a phobia of the subject. While in Berlin, Jill accidentally meets a survivor of the Ravensbrück concentration camp, who explains to her how the women in the camp would discuss recipes as a way to cope with their circumstances. As a result of her encounter with the survivor, Jill is not only able to deal with her own fear, but also has an opportunity to help realize the woman’s lifelong dream.
