Do drug dealers really dream of retirement and pension plans? XXXX (Daniel Craig) is a cocaine guy who wants to get out, but his ties with the local British mob make it very hard for him to quit.

A successful cocaine dealer (Daniel Craig), who has earned a respected place among England's Mafia elite, plans an early retirement from the business. However, big boss Jimmy Price (Kenneth Cranham) hands down a tough assignment: find Charlotte Ryder, the missing rich princess daughter of Jimmy's old pal Edward, a powerful construction business player and gossip papers socialite. Complicating matters are two million pounds' worth of Grade A ecstasy, a brutal neo-Nazi sect and a whole series of double crossings. The title LAYER CAKE refers to the layers or levels anyone in business goes through in rising to the top. What is revealed is a modern underworld where the rules have changed. There are no 'codes', or 'families' and respect lasts as long as a line. Not knowing who he can trust, he has to use all his 'savvy', 'telling' and skills which make him one of the best, to escape his own. The ultimate last job, a love interest called Tammy (Sienna Miller), and an international drug ring threaten to draw him back into the 'cake mix'. But, time is running out and the penalty will endure a lifetime.
