Middle-aged divorcee Jenna has received an incredible offer. A friend who directs an international mission wants to send her to Venice for one week to cook for a mission leaders' retreat. Jenna isn't a great cook, so she brings along Sue, her culinary sister-in-law. When the two women see their lodgings - a 15th-century palazzo - and taste their first spoonful of chocolate gelato, they know that the following days will change their lives. As Jenna enjoys each moment's blessings, Sue learns that she too can draw spiritual strength from this journey.
