“Eat Spirit Eat” is an absurdest comedy about Oliver and a pack of misfit orphans growing up in a foster home. Oliver spends his childhood obsessed with movies and incessantly flipping through TV channels in the hopes of getting a glimpse of his actor father whom he has never met. One by one the other kids are placed in homes, but Oliver refuses adoption because he believes so strongly that if his father becomes successful he will keep the promise he gave a long time ago and come back for him. When he realizes that his father’s success will not happen on its own, Oliver decides to leave the foster home, track down his childhood friends and recruit them to do the impossible… make a movie starring his unknown father in order to win his love.

A surreal coming of age film about friendship and family and realizing sometimes, there is no difference between the two.
