As an elderly cook slowly stirs her delicious recipe for a bean paste delicacy, so this simple and meditative story slowly stirs the emotions. A lonely baker trying to make a living from his street booth take-away is reluctant to take on the skills of a senior lady with a special recipe - until he tastes the result. A friendship develops which allows them both to open up about their difficult pasts. Japanese spiritual wisdom, blossoming cherry trees and the delights of cooking!
