Amazon Prime Video has released the trailer to Sitting in Bars with Cake, the adaptation of the based-on-real-life book of the same name by Audrey Shulman.

Grown-ish‘s Yara Shahidi and Hellraiser‘s Odessa A’zion star in the film as, respectively, Jane and Corinne, two 20-something besties in Los Angeles. The streamer teases the movie is “full of baking, dating and drama.”

According to Amazon, “Corinne, the ultimate extrovert, convinces her shy-but-extremely-talented home baker best friend to commit to a year of baking cakes and bringing them to bars, with the goal of meeting people and developing confidence — also known as ‘cakebarring.'”

However, that year brings a “life-altering diagnosis” for Corinne, in what Prime Video calls a “moving celebration of female friendship, forging identity, and finding joy in the most unexpected places.”

Sitting in Bars with Cake, which also stars Ron Livingston and Bette Midler, debuts September 8 on Prime Video.
