A successful cocaine dealer, who has earned a respected place among England’s mafia elite, plans to retire early from business. However, the great boss Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) gives him a difficult task: to find Charlie Ryder (Nathalie Lunghi), the missing rich princess, daughter of Jimmy’s old friend Eddie Temple (Sir Michael Gambon), a powerful construction player and newspaper socialite. . To complicate things, there are two million pounds in grade “A” ecstasy, a brutal Serbian band and a whole series of double betrayals. The title “Layer Cake” refers to the layers or levels that anyone in the business goes through to reach the top. What is revealed is a modern underworld where the rules have changed. There are no “codes,” no “families,” and respect lasts as long as a line. Not knowing who you can trust, you have to use all your “wisdom,” “storytelling,” and skills that make you one of the best to escape your own.
