Donald (Jackie Vernon) is a construction worker whose nagging wife, May (Claire Ginsberg) fancies herself a gourmet cook. Though all he wants is a simple baloney and cheese sandwich, she serves up botched delicacies straight from the microwave. One night Donald comes home drunk and snaps; he murders his wife, dismembers her and wraps the pieces in tinfoil to hide in the freezer. When he mistakenly eats a few bites of his former wife, he discovers just how delicious a woman can be. Donald shares the meat with his coworkers (who are oblivious to its origin) and starts picking up prostitutes to restock his pantry. Since he's free of his wife, eating well and having sex for the first time in years, Donald is finally content; what he doesn't realize is that the giant microwave he cooks his meals in is affecting his pacemaker. There's plenty of spilled blood, bad taste and bared bosoms in this low budget black comedy.
