The manager of a pancake stall finds himself confronted with an odd but sympathetic elderly woman looking for work. A taste of her homemade bean jelly convinces him to hire her, which starts a relationship that is about much more than just street food. Nominated for an Un Certain Regard Award at the **Cannes Film Festival.** Official Selection at the **Toronto Film Festival.** *"Its sentimentality is tempered by the elegant restraint of the fine lead performances." - Sheri Linden, **The Los Angeles Times*** "*Warm and unusually crowd-pleasing.*" - ***The Village Voice***
