Synopsis:

An unconventional love story with a meaty twist. Exploring such themes as love, isolation and hope, Cured tells the painstakingly humorous story of Maggie as she struggles with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. Having resigned herself to a life without love, her job as a butcher only serves as a form of self-deprecation. But when the object of her affections unexpectedly orders one pork chop instead of his usual two, Maggie suddenly has a shot at love. But will her illness stand in the way?
