A woman prepares her kitchen, a tightly controlled environment….but is life ever that simple and for what or whom is she preparing?

Today I Bake is a visually compelling exploration of themes sourced from Grimm’s Rumpelstiltskin. Intense, intriguing, brave and uncomfortable, with flickers of dark humour.
