About The Movie:
When a ballet dancer visits the small island of Windward, local baker Matt (Daugherty) is enamored. His passion for her somehow finds its way into his baking, transforming Matt’s bread from bland to brilliant. His wondrous new success attracts tourists, boosting the fortunes of the small island community. When the dancer leaves Matt is heartbroken and his bread promptly loses its magic. The townsfolk immediately set about trying to find him a new muse but in the process, everyone, including Matt, overlooks the most obvious choice – Annie (Mumford), the owner of the local café and Matt’s best friend and confidant who supported and loved him all along.
