A magical lovestory for grown-ups enfolds in an idyllic setting where monks exude scents that mirror their names - Brother Plum is one, Brother Cherry another. When a restaurator who dabbles in love potions arrives at the monastery, with her five-year-old daughter in tow, everybody's lives are tragicomically turned topsyturvy. The director's style is often compared to the magic realism of South America.
