Growing suspicious of his parents' insistence on finishing his dinner loaded with mystery meat, young Michael begins to suspect his quirky parents just might be cannibals. A horrifying black comedy styled like something from a McCarthy era family sitcom, the sometimes strange, sometimes terrifying visuals almost feel akin to Lynch's Blue Velvet, a subverted version of classic Americana sure to delight and disgust.
