One Man's Meat

New Zealand, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Fiction)

He's late home — again. She's lonely; she's fed up; she's got ambitions. She gets help from some big stars — Dionne Warwick, The Virgin Mary, a Living Barbie Doll and a Dominatrix... But what will they lead her to do? There's more cooking than just dinner.
