Summary At a fashionable birthday party in Southern California, a parade of women playfully mingle and muse on their body image hang-ups, eating disorders, relationships, and a conformist society obsessed with beauty. For these partygoers, even their untouched slices of cake provide insight into the love-hate relationship between femmes and food. A hilarious and thought-provoking smorgasbord of "biting" observation about women, love, neuroses, and the food that binds them all.
