    Brief synopsis

    A little girl waits for her mother in a cafe, enjoying the best cakes in the world. As she grows bored, she starts to explore the cafe and wonder about “the big questions in life”. There are fascinating things and fascinating people in the cafe - the friendly waiter, the pretty waitress, the strange family celebrating grandma’s birthday and the boy who cannot help but get into trouble. The sweet and playful world of children meets the more stressful world of adults in this ageless tale.
