Doctor Cheezy

When Benjy, Liewe, Talisha, Faris and Fee escape from a weight-loss camp to score a hamburger at their favourite fast-food chain Doctor Cheezy, they get hopelessly lost. On their journey back to the camp the children are completely dependent on each other.

“A comic and heart-warming series”

Together they go on a heavy, funny and sometimes bloodcurdling journey. They hitch a ride with a Ranger, steal food at a funeral, escape a ferocious garage owner and eventually share their secrets, fears and desires. For the first time they all let down the guards that they have built over the years and they become friends for life.
