Fortnight 1995, Feature film, 1h57


Victor, an overweight pizza chef, spends his days tending to his over-bearing mother, and his nights spinning pizzas in her rural restaurant. A new waitress comes to work – Callie, a beautiful confused college-dropout, looking for direction in her own life. The two draw together. And Victor finds himself crossing an emotional threshold he’s never before risked…
