New York is the backdrop, inspiration and co-creator of this funny and passionate meta-fictional romance.


New York in the summer is a wonderful place to fall in love. Florian meets a mysterious woman holding a piece of cake at a train station. He then asks strangers on the streets what this could mean. With a resounding ‘cake’ means ‘seduction’ coming from the interviewees, Florian casts her opposite him in a unique take on the romantic comedy genre. The pair begins to act out a love story film, with the twist that each scene in the story is suggested by everyday people interviewed by Florian on the streets and cafes of New York.
