Animal is a heart-warming and hilarious story that will take you on a roller coaster of emotions. The story follows David, he’s gay and disabled and is looking for love. His stumbling block - he can’t eat, drink, or shower by himself and never had a kiss. Despite his lack of knowledge in the field of love, he has a sharp mind and a high I.Q. This leads him to go on an adventure to explore his romantic and sexual desires, carrying with him his impressive nudes (taken by someone else). Will this new awakening to the dating world hold him back or will finally discover the love he’s been searching for?
Join David on this hilariously heartfelt journey as he transcends his identity and expectations. There’ll be many challenges to face, buckets of tears shed and an awe-inspiring message to remember.
