Doris’s Café is a homey space where people could relax and enjoy the smoothing afternoon sun and daydreaming. The aroma of coffee and home-baked desserts fills the air. The café is meant to be as elegant as its owner, Doris, but has been turned upside down by her sister, Josie. Ignoring Doris protest, Josie starts exchanging goods with costumers in the shop. Objects of various kinds begin to accumulate; discarded by their previous owners, they prove to be treasures in the eyes of others. The activity of swapping goods upstages Doris coffee-making and becomes the biggest attraction of the shop.
One day, a mysterious man walks in by chance. He loves brownie with espresso and that happens to be Doris’ favourite combination as well. He brings 35 bars of soaps from 35 different cities in the hope of trading them for something special. Every time he comes in, he orders a cup of coffee and tells a story of one of the soaps. These exotic tales fill Doris mind with beautiful images and she materialises them in her paintings.
In the end, Doris is willing to swap her heart for these enchanting tales - she longs to see these cities with her own eyes…During the process of this exchange, what exactly does he get from the soaps on which his memories are engraved?
