Charlotte Roche in "Eden" (photo © Gambit & C-Films)

Eden, a married woman, falls under the spell of the "Cucina Erotica" of eccentric master chef Gregor. Their platonic gourmet meetings jolt both Eden and Gregor out of their humdrum everyday lives; Eden's marriage blossoms as a result. But they live in a small town in which nothing remains secret for long, and after Eden‘s husband Xaver experiences the erotic cuisine for himself, he is forced to take action or else lose his wife.
