Young shepherd Ephraim is abandoned by his father and sent away to be looked after by relatives. He isn’t very good at farming, but he has a hidden talent: he is an excellent cook. One day, his uncle tells him that they have to sacrifice his sheep for the next religious feast. The young boy, however, is ready to do anything to save his only friend and return home.
