What happens when an idealist, simple, and determined young man gets a loan to fulfill his dream of setting up a vegetarian food stand in the middle of a park in Texas? The inevitable: he hits his head against reality, which is a world made of preservatives and people unwilling to give up their tastes and artificial flavors. Few are actually interested in soy dogs; but among them there’s a picturesque group of characters dwelling around the organic food cart (including musician Jonny Mars) and especially a young woman who could trigger a love story. Proving to have a great talent for comedy using the finest deadpan-style humor (an undisturbed face during the act in question) and some of the irony only few people handle with precision, Paul Gordon cooks, just like the character he plays, a simple and romantic piece. With only the necessary seasoning so the original taste of comedy won’t fade away.
