A young man faces an identity crisis after withstanding years of rejection from society due to his, to put it nicely, deformity.

Inspiration:
I had hit a wall. I had been hermiting in my room for a few weeks and had to come up with a few ideas for a film for my Advanced Narrative Production class with Danny Plotnick, but I had nothing. My best friend Chelsea Javier took one look at me and said, get your ass out of bed and come check out galleries with me in the Mission. That is where I found him. A man in a suit with lobster claws for hands and a lobster head in the storefront of 826 Valencia, the Pirate Store and what is more commonly known as the nonprofit writing center for students and teachers. It was love at first sight and I knew I had to do something about it. The script I wrote was inspired by the half man/half crustacean in the suit, as well as events in my own life. This is my second narrative film, and the first I have done almost entirely on my own. I put my heart and soul into this project, and I hope you all enjoy!
