Ralph was just a normal guy. On Sunday, he worked one of his last shifts at his family-owned bakery due to Ralph's bankruptcy.
Meeting with the Mentor
While working, one of Ralph's clients left a ticket to the infamous LA baking competiton along with his tip.
Crossing the Threshold
Ralph takes the ticket back to his house, for safe keeping, not being able to believe that he had been given something he had dreamed of. But he wasn't ready, and the ticket wasn't his, right?
Tests, Allies and Enemies
The next day, an old man, Victor, approaches Ralph, explaining why HE had given him the ticket. He had been watching him and thought that he could be the perfect candidate for the competition. He insisted for Ralph to go and even threatened his job.
The next day, Ralph gets on a plane, with Victor's force. Ralph is so nervous that he can barely move from his seat. He had been watching the bakers from LA on TV for months!
He finally gets to the baking competition, and soon meets his competitors- like Cuppy the Cupcake and Fanny the Fantastic. The director of the competition soon greets Ralph, staring him down.
