A woman recounts the story of her mother's superstition about Gingerbread men. Can eating the head of the cookie destroy a life supernaturally? The documentary investigates how one woman's former status as a 1945 Sudenten-German refugee, imbues her current sensitivity towards this inanimate object. Her story further begs the question: has our sensitivity been lost during the parallel migration of refugees in Europe today? 'Live Gingerbread Man Live' probes this very question.
