In the animated film by Enzo d’Alò, based on a novel by Roddy Doyle, life and death are no opposites. Mary and her family unravel grandma’s past, piece fragmented memories back together and find reconciliation in the act of saying goodbye.

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.
