A short documentary about Bill – the Grizzly-Adams-bearded, 52-year-old, fixie-cycling delivery guy for Best Pizza in Brooklyn.

Each day in Mumbai 4000 men in white outfits and matching hats transport 175,000 lunches across the big city. They retrieve the tiffens (lunch containers) of food from mothers and wives, and bring them (by foot, train, bicycle and even carried on top of their heads) to the office buildings of waiting husbands and sons.
