In Tel Aviv, six friends who are appalled by the Israeli entry in the UniverSong competition record their own song on a mobile phone, with surprising results. "The gaudy excesses of the annual Eurovision contest have inspired filmmakers before, but rarely have they been employed as sure-footedly as in Eytan Fox’s dramedy CUPCAKES.
