Cake is the story of one man's journey into deep rooted parts of himself that have driven his decisions since childhood. Our lead character Steve is socially awkward, endlessly strange, but somehow not without a boyish charm. Fun, quirky, and at times unsettling, CAKE endeavours to exhibit the freedom one can come to if they learn to accept their desires.
