In a small hotel, a man is trying to appease his hunger for love by excessive eating. But his longing for his beloved Suzanne will not be soothed by plates full of meat cuts, vegetables and fruit. When he goes to town in search of food, he accidentally hurts his foot, which unexpectedly transforms into Suzanne. The two become inseparable. A surreal adaptation of Roland Topor’s short novel about loneliness, jealousy and love.
