Slender

 

"It was the desire for food that spawned disobedience; it was the pleasure of taste that drove us from paradise." Abbot Nilus (d430)

However big the portion is you're never satisfied, are you?
So what is there to do but to stop eating altogether...

Slender was an encounter between strangers, set in a kitchen, about a man starving himself to death; an exploration of what happens when your body isn't sure whether your soul exists...
