Norman Pinski Come Home

“Finding oneself can take a lifetime. For Norman Pinski, it’s gonna take a little longer.”

When a lightning bolt tragically cuts short the life of a Jewish plumber’s son, all appears lost for the Pinski family. But luckily for them, Dr. Vanderwal, a celebrated local baldness doctor is secretly a modern day Dr. Frankenstein. Once resurrected in the form of a classic horror film monster, Norman has another chance at finding himself … if his overbearing Jewish parents don’t get in the way.

“It’s a growing problem.”

Maggie is expecting, but father-to-be, Greg, is concerned about her weight. Not because she’s losing her slim physique, but because she’s becoming so enormous that he fears for her safety. Since not even their new age midwife seems to take him seriously, Greg starts to think it’s all in his own head… until he discovers the problem is not at all what he expected.

“Dinner will never be the same again…”

Scott, a young financial executive, reluctantly agrees to help his friend Dave, when he claims to be producing food in an unorthodox manner. In the process, Scott makes a startling discovery about his friend’s condition and takes on the urgent task of finding answers to Dave’s plight. Through research, he learns that an epidemic called Krotchfeld Lubitsch Syndrome is spreading around the globe. According to scientists, the disease reverses the human digestive process causing its victims to produce gourmet meals orally. With this new information, Scott believes he may be able to save his friend before it’s too late… that is, if his friend still wants to be saved.
