In a darkly surreal city scape, a young man named Stan has a found new assistant job at a bizarre, underground business that caters to miserable city dwellers in need of escape. For a sizeable fee, Stan and his boss, Rooney, will transform their clients into any animal of their choice, using a painful and illegal procedure. But Stan is growing increasingly disillusioned by the many dark and unsettling realities of his new line of work. His life is further complicated by unwanted sexual advances from his middle-aged psychiatrist, Dana, and the unshakeable feeling that he is always being followed.
Filled with surreal imagery, the film stars David Wontner of Guy Maddin's Keyhole (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3637096/) and is written and directed by Nick Butler (reel: https://vimeo.com/49487368 ).
