Isabella is a great cook, making her husband's restaurant in Bahia, Brazil, a success.
To control her motion sickness, she must do the driving and be on top during sex, which drives her macho husband, Toninho, to cheat on her.
Heart-broken, she leaves for San Francisco, moving in with her childhood friend, Monica, a cross-dresser.
To mend her heart, she makes an offering to Yemanja, the goddess of the sea. The goddess responds and Isabella no longer loves.
Stricken, Toninho heads north to get her back; he finds her hosting a popular TV show, Passion Food. But can he learn humility? Can she find happiness without him?
