Thomas, a confectioner from Berlin, is having an affair with Oren, a married Israeli. Their relationship ends abruptly when Oren has a fatal accident. Distraught, Thomas travels to Israel to meet Oren's wife Anat and his son and slowly gains their trust. He gets involved in the family's kosher cafe and is a big hit with his German cakes. But the deeper Thomas enters into Oren's former life, the bigger the lie standing between him and Anat is getting. The Cakemaker is a quiet, sensitive film about a German-Israeli love relationship that crosses the borders of sexuality.
