Synopsis:
Victor is the overweight, thirty-something, underappreciated cook at Pete and Dolly's, a roadside diner in upstate New York where the regulars are staler than the coffee, and just as bitter. Victor lives with his loving but domineering mother Dolly, who owns the diner. She spends her days sitting at the back of the kitchen pampering her pooch, reminiscing about her late husband and goading Delores, the long-serving, long-suffering waitress who once had an affair with him. Their routines are disrupted when Dolly hires sweet but directionless Callie as a new waitress, and Victor develops an immediate crush on the alluring college dropout.
Introverted to the point of invisibility, he can barely communicate with her, but they casually interact, which stimulates Victor to further obsession. As Dolly falls sick and Callie decides to quit, Victor has to face the world with a fresh perspective to prevent his low self-esteem from swallowing him up forever.
