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.
