Lipidleggin' is a narrative short film based on a sci-fi short story published by F. Paul Wilson, adapted for the screen with the author's permission. A 'lipidlegger' sells bootleg butter and eggs, the sale of which has been made illegal to reduce national health care costs, at his rural fly fishing shop. He is approached by an undercover public health agent looking for a quick arrest that could help lead to a promotion, but when the agent gets a long-denied taste of the 'real thing,' the sting operation takes an unexpected turn.
