Tells the story of a group of neighbors, which are randomly selected to represent Israel in an international singing competition. They meet every year to watch the Universong contest together. This year things turn sour when Anat tells her friends that her husband left her. The group bursts out singing to make her feel better, and Ofer, who recorded the whole thing, sends the clip to the local Universong contest's committee.... They WIN, and sent as the Israeli representatives to the Universong. The film follows their journey to the Universong, and their fight to stay authentic and true to their own selves. The film features great hits such as Captain & Tennille's "Love Will Keep us Together", Baccara's "Yes Sir, I Can Boogie" and Mike Brant's "Laisse Moi T'aimer". "The more you know and like Eurovision, the funnier you’ll find the send-ups of typical Eurovision production numbers and hosts. But even those who are not into Eurovision will have fun at this infectious and enjoyable movie. Watching Cupcakes is like taking an extravagant 90-minute vacation from reality, and who couldn’t use a vacation these days?" Jerusalem Post
