Mo picks up Pete in a club and together they trip the night away.

Only Pete tends to pass out with all the drink and drugs, and Mo tends to flashback to a childhood birthday party when her brother (?) was killed. She's reliving that birthday party in the present, only Pete has become her brother and quite literally her cake. Will she eat him too?

This short is well crafted and keen on visual symbolism (red icing on hands = blood of slain brother, water = sexuality & life). Jodhi May and Enzo Cilenti provide the right mix of lust and wonder to their tripped out characters. While it was strange seeing Jodhi May sans BBC costume drama, it was ultimately very good. We need to see her more often in modern settings as she's one of the best actors of her generation.
