Black Cake (2023) on Hulu | Official Trailer
“Black Cake” is an adaptation of Charmaine Wilkerson's 2022 The New York Times-bestselling book. The novel is an entertaining mix of a family drama and a murder mystery. The story spans decades and takes place in Jamaica, Rome, Scotland, England and Southern California.
"In the late 1960s, a runaway bride named Covey (played by Mia Isaac) disappears into the surf off the coast of Jamaica and is feared drowned or a fugitive on the run for her husband’s murder. Fifty years later in California, a widow named Eleanor Bennett (Chipo Chung), loses her battle with cancer, leaving her two estranged children, Byron (Ashley Thomas) and Benny (Adrienne Warren), a flash drive that holds previously untold stories of her journey from the Caribbean to America. These stories, narrated by Eleanor, shock her children and challenge everything they thought they knew about their family’s origin." ~ Official Synopsis
