Babka Without Borders
Whats babka, you ask? Only the tastiest, most delectable pastry in the world... and a key ingredient in this hysterical, fast-paced farce thats loaded with physical humor and a bit reminiscent of The Grand Budapest Hotel. Oh, did we mention that the babka becomes an aerial assault weapon that sparks an international war? You see, The Harmony Café could be any quaint eastern European bistro if it werent for one thing: an international border runs smack dab through the middle of it! One half of the café is in the Grand Duchy of Bunkelburg; the other half is located in the Royal Principality of Primwick. Luckily, the café serves the worlds best babka, and Hildegard and her staff somehow manage all the multiple border crossings and red-tape to serve their delicious, sweet coffee cakes and keep the peace. But because the Duchess of Bunkelburg secretly entered and won Primwicks annual babka baking contest, the Prince of Primwick closes the border, making restaurant operations near impossible. But once that slice of babka goes flying across the border and hits a Primwickian patriotic zealot... well, now its all-out war! Its hard to see how even The Harmony Café can maintain the peace, let alone stay in business! But with much farcical humor and good fun, the very same pastry that tore the countries apart brings them back together. This large-cast tale of love, espionage, and the best babka east of the Danube goes to show there are no boundaries for good taste!
