A 23 minute comic horror film about food hygiene made by a cast of learning disabled actors.

Jane lives on her own, and let’s face it, her flat is in a bit of a state. No wonder her friends won’t come round, let alone eat the food she makes. One day Jane cooks for Mike. He takes one look at it and escapes, leaving Jane to finish the food herself and to a night she will never forget . . .
