Film Introduction

In the Nazi concentration camps, in Soviet Gulags, in Japanese war camps, prisoners would write hundreds of cooking recipes. These starving inmates who would kill for a piece of bread, painstakingly wrote these recipes at great personal risk. These recipes became a universal act of resistance, and one that has never been studied before.

This documentary explores extraordinary moments in history, and the power of imaginary feasts to feed the soul.
