La Madeleine e lo Straniero

A Romanian chef is getting his first Michelin Star, when he tastes a particular wine: like with Proust’s Madeleine, that wine takes him back to the past, when he was a young immigrate looking for a job as a cook and stole right a bottle of that wine to get what he wanted. Thanks to this memory, probably ejected for ages from his brain, he regrets what he did and decides to ask for forgiveness.
