About

Based on a short story by Frances Cherry, One Man's Meat stars Donogh Rees as a wife teetering on teh brink of insanity.  Jo struggles with dinner, the raw meat in her kitchen too much for her to deal with.  She falls into a dream-state and imagines herself fronting a girl-group with Barbie, The Virgin Mary and a dominatrix as her back-up singers.  

We see her reality in flashbacks, watching her husband come home drunk and Jo attending a dinner party solo where she has to explain his absence.
