Project Synopsis
A pizza delivery man knocks on the front door of a house with no response. Inside, a young girl takes notice and visits rooms around the house notifying the various people inside that dinner is here. Inside the bedroom, two girls braid each others hair, while one aggressive eats her own hair. In the living room, a lavishly dressed host entertains three guests who dance and gossip around the room. A middle-aged women alone in a dark room looks through a vanity mirror, her reflection is an older version of herself. Her reflection reaches through the mirror and applies a green moisturizer to her cheeks, it clears away the wrinkles and blemishes. The young girl knocks on the door and the women, now younger looking exists the room. A vogue dancer moves down the hallway snaking down the stairs in rhythmic patterns. Outside the backyard, a women 'suntans' under the moonlight while an elderly man in a garden of house lamps, 'plants' lightbulbs into the ground. Finally, the young girl answers the pizza man's call and opens the door. The dinner party dines happily on....the pizza boy.
