    • Synopsis
    • MIKE's appetite is infinite. It is without taboos or obstacles. He will eat anything, anywhere at any time. At the El Palacio, a resort in the carribean, he falls for the all-you-can-eat american style buffet and doesn't look back. His voracious appetite and a strong yet mysterious magnetism attracts both fascination and disgust.
      He becomes friends with a flamboyant VALET, a mysterious CHAMBERMAID and her hyperactive SON. But all that attention also draws in some less friendly people, among which is the SALSA TEACHER, whose annoying egotisical rants and omnipresently dull beats deeply irritate Mike.
      His newfound friends and enemy will accompany him in gargantuan downward spiral mixing social and intestinal debacle; a strange metamorphosis backed by the best customer service in the world.
