Londoner Kate Pickles has hit rock bottom. She's funny, kind, and talented but totally unaware about all the great things she has going for her. Day in and day out, she sits back and whines to her sister Laurie in Sydney, Australia, as her boss walks all over and her best friend Eva bags the hot guys while Kate ends up dating whack jobs and comfort eating cake. Pouring out her heart to Laurie in a series of letters and emails, Kate longs for her sister to confirm she really is the loser in love she fears she is.
Although Laurie is happily married with two kids, that doesn't mean she isn't frazzled and exhausted. Laurie loves getting Kate's letters and gets a huge buzz from dipping into Kate's messy dating life. But she can't stand by and watch her sis swell to the size of a Sumo wrestler and keep being so down on herself. Instead, Laurie decides to cut through the crap and starts telling Kate she really is wonderful, she just needs to stop dating losers, stop eating cake and get a life!
Reluctant to take Laurie's advice, Kate continues to wallow in self pity until opportunity bites her in the bum. Abruptly, Kate's life is turned upside down when, on a trip to Vienna with her glamorous pal, Eva, Kate falls for a sexy Austrian and gets sucked into making a Bollywood film. As her life gathers momentum Kate faces a crossroads. Will she continue to use cake as an emotional crutch or listen to Laurie's sage advice, enter cake rehab and conquer her fears?
““Instead of leaning forward and brushing his lips against mine, he says, "I know we got off to a bad start but I've thought about you a lot. I think you're very sweet." Sweet? I'm not sure I want to be called sweet. Sexy, bawdy, horny, hell, I'll even take voluptuous at a pinch. But sweet, it makes me feel like I'm a little girl who he wants to look after.”"A half naked man, trousers rolled up to his knees, is ankle deep in water, which he’s scooping into a bucket before pouring down the sink.I take a few steps back, and bump into Eva who’s busy watching him. Sweat is dripping down his back, due to his hearty exertions."”
