short musical film
Are we going to eat away our planet or will we try to create a better future?
Glittering socialite Laura starts slipping from the daily reality of a weight obsessed rich man's mistress. While on a fancy dinner with her gluttonous lover she enters a strange world where food dances and sings. The whirlwind of dance blows the air out of Laura's head and she becomes a different type of girl...
How people treat each other is mirrored in the way we treat our environment and our food. That's why “Eat me” focuses on our attitude to food, its dubious contents and food waste through the prism of a skewed relationship.
