In the Jutland peninsula during the late 19th century, exiled French housekeeper Audran wins 10,000 francs in a lottery and uses the money to prepare a sumptuous banquet in honour of a deceased Lutheran dean, whose daughters are sustaining his mission to the poor and needy. But when the shopping list arrives the sisters begin to wonder if a feast is compatible with their piety. A delicious gastronomic experience and an exquisite, boisterous slice of cinematic narrative with real feeling.
