Mistress of Spices

Description
The movie tells a realist tale about an enchanting Indian orphan who has leaned to harness the magical properties of spices. She becomes the Mistress of Spices and is sent to the Spice Bazaar in San Francisco, with the mission of following three basic rules: help her clients to accomplish their desires with the spices, but never hers; never leave the store; and never be touched in the skin.
