Cake is a film about the passage of time seen through the eyes of one family.
One of the most anticipated Pakistani film releases of 2018, Cake, will be hosting special advance screening at Vue Birmingham on Monday 19th March 2018. For one evening only, Vue Birmingham will be welcoming the stars Aamina Sheikh, Sanam Saeed, Adnan Malik and Beo Raana Zafar; and director Asim Abbasi for a Q&A to follow after the screening of the film.
Present-day Karachi forms the backdrop depicting an ageing patriarch of the Jamali family who is taken ill. His eldest daughter and sole carer, Zareen is forced to reconnect with her sister, Zara on her return from London.
Burdened with guilt and resentments, the sisters must confront old secrets and realise that sometimes the only way for a family to move on is by finding a way back.
At its core, Cake is a film about the passage of time seen through the eyes of one family. It offers a heartfelt look at the realities of life, from past to present and the choices made by the family members.
