Lazy Susan (2015)


A friendly waitress Susan works a double at an everyday Cape Town restaurant, deftly serving gluttons and WASPs, hipsters and high-tippers, racists and lechers. With some effort she maintains both wit and service in the face of obnoxious customers—until a lousy tip gets the better of her.Told from the perspective of a single lazy susan rotating tray, LAZY SUSAN mixes dark comedy and social commentary with devastating effect.
