    Synopsis: Susan is a friendly waitress working double shifts at an everyday Cape Town restaurant, deftly serving gluttons and Wasps, hipsters and high-tippers, racists and lechers. With some effort, she maintains both wit and service in the face of obnoxious customers—until a lousy tip gets the better of her. Told from the perspective of a single turntable (aka lazy susan), this short mixes dark comedy and social commentary.
