Fiona is a young woman with an uncontrollable talent for culinary seduction yet with little control over the effects her cooking has on the people who devour it. Slumming at a short-order food counter on the edge of the city, fantasy, ennui, and love collide as a host of characters declare themselves, deciding on futures and fates, with darkly comic consequences.
On this one night, life becomes a buffet and everything is “Short Order”.
