A dark comedy about a man who would literally die if ever he felt happiness.

This modern-day fairytale is about a man called Monday who, due to a fatal allergy to serotonin, would quite literally die if ever he felt happiness. He cannot listen to music, he cannot eat cheesecake and he most certainly cannot smile. It is a lifestyle he has managed to adapt to through dour humour, social isolation and frequent trips to the cemetery, although it is here at a funeral that he meets the ever-cheerful Lola Bennett, the woman so kind and attractive that she just might be his downfall...

Jack Lawrence currently studies film and television production at York University where the facilities have allowed him to make a multitude of shorts over the past few years, ranging from stern dramas about the homeless to crass comedies about the porn industry. Right now. he is working on a crime caper called "The Painter the Thief" that is to be funded through Kickstarter (kickstarter.com/projects/jack0rlando/the-painter-and-the-thief-british-drama).
