Summary
"Oba, a middle-aged businessman, is torn between his pride and dignity. He's obsessed with making deals in unidentified substances to stay afloat. A powerful client named Araf arrives, interested in Oba's business, but also his fierce, inherited servant Femi. Oba's young progeny Mabo is hungry and desperate, but still driven by his skills and sympathetic to the needs of others. In this stark and poetic musing on the nature and poisons of survival, Cake humanizes the dynamic between Niger and Iran and their clandestine trade in uranium, presenting a dark and critical look at oppression, consumerism, and what happens when all of our resources are dried up"-- Provided by publisher.
