Based on a story by Roddy Doyle. Eleven-year-old Mary (Mia O'Connor) has a passion for cooking and dreams of becoming a great chef. Her grandmother Emer (Rosaleen Linehan), with whom she has a special relationship, encourages her to make this dream come true. However, 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.

Along the way she comes across Scarlett (Sharon Horgan) who guides her as she seeks the right path. Mary also visits the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Co Cork where her grandmother's influence shines through.

A wonderful, charming tale for all the family. Many Irish traits are transferred seamlessly to the big screen, a credit to both the writing of Roddy Doyle as well as the skill of the director, Enzo D'Alò.

A Luxembourg co-production by Paul Thiltges Distributions (PTD).

In English with French subtitles, and in Luxembourgish.

Currently screening at Ciné Utopia and CiNextDoor.
