Following in the footsteps of his father, Achille Franzi is the pastry chef. As a child he spent his days in the bakery of his father, whose advice represented a real guide for interpreting life, almost a gospel. Now that he is adult, Achille lives his work as a mission, to make people happy through the perfection of sweets.
But one day the chance, or perhaps destiny, takes him away from the routine full of delicious creams and yeast, sugar and cream puffs. Despite himself, he begins a journey that will change his life. To survive, Achille will face dangerous tests, both escorted and hampered by a femme fatale, a shyster and a foul scrupulous cop. As the journey proceeds, Achilles will tell us his story, his past: a paradise of pastel colors, scents, flavors and secret recipes.
