An old man tells his grandchildren the story of how he lost his hand.
I realise that this script will probably never get made because of one big scaly issue but I’m sure a very creative director could find an interesting way around the logistical difficulty of it.
I wanted to do a modern fable and something about storytelling, which is a theme I’m kind of obsessed with. It’s only set in France because of the true incident in the sewers of Paris in 1984 which inspired the story. It could conceivably suit any large city.
Hope you enjoy it.
