Description: Victor is a lonely and overweight pizza chef who earns his living in his mother's roadside diner in upstate New York. Though he aches to change his life, Victor is surrounded by people who are as immobile as he is--people who are as blind to his yearnings as they are to their own. But, when the staff of the diner is joined by a new waitress, Callie, a beautiful young college dropout, Victor is exposed to a new kind of companionship. With someone to dream about and something to dream for, Victor's life is about to change.
