"Piece of Cake" was inspired by a story of a friend of my family who went one time to a public diner and ate someone else's food by mistake while the person was away to the restroom. The film is also a commentary about the hardship of the middle class person living off food coupons and cheap diners in the city with a funny twist to it.
