Cara-Ethyl (Kylie Sparks) is an eccentric, obese, and sheltered girl on the eve of her eighteenth birthday who desperately dreams of an exciting life. But she's left with her blind, clueless (but well-meaning) mother (Julie Hagerty), a pest of a brother and imaginary friends (Cara-Ethyl pretends she has a friend for her mother). All that is changed when the pizza man, Matt Firenze (Ethan Embry), comes to the door. Soon, Cara-Ethyl convinces Matt to allow her to go with him on his deliveries. As the night progresses, Cara-Ethyl and Matt impart their wisdom and learn from each other, and both are forced to evaluate their lives.
