Well-known character actor Pat Cake has made quite a name for himself in British crime cinemas. After all he has accomplished, landing the pivotal role in the new sequel, Jesus Christ Social Media Star, in London’s West End was just another feather in his cap. But for Joy Attwood this new assignment is raising the stakes. Despite the circumstances that left a teacher without her occupation, there is nothing in the world that could stop her from behaving like a professional this time.
But with everything from a cab door to the stage beams working against her, Joy discovers that sometimes the bright lights of the big stage aren’t quite as gleaming as you might think. As Pat helps Joy navigate the cutthroat world of acting, her biggest challenge just might come from getting too involved with the subject she’s following.
Can Joy survive the day under the watchful eye of the adoring public? Or will her anxious and shy demeanor give her up as a fool in front of thousands of people?
