Fanis is a man torn between his Greek ethnicity and his emotional roots in Turkey, the country of his birth. Using the device of cuisine as a metaphor for national identity and personal feelings, we see Fanis grow from a boy whose grandfather imparts culinary and philosophical expertise from the Aladdin’s cave of his spice shop, to a young man with a true passion for food. Deported to Greece with his family as a young boy, Fanis returns home after 35 years for an emotional reunion with his grandfather...and his first love. A bitter sweet journey of the senses, set against the historical backdrop of the deportation of thousands of Greeks from Istanbul, this is one of the biggest Greek films of all time.
