In a series of twelve episodes, filmmaker Heddy Honigmann looks for the meaning of the adage 'The way to the heart is through the stomach'. For this purpose, she asked twelve people to cook their favourite dish before the camera. While they are cooking, they tell anecdotes and Honigmann elicits statements about the connection between food and eroticism. In Saudade Monica Triga prepares together with her mother the dish rabbit of the hunt, which she learned from her Portuguese grandfather. Monica tells and sings in fadoes full of love and nostalgia about the simple sincere life of her grandpa.
