For Hannah, writing a play for a zany contest is like trying to put socks on an octopus: almost impossible! She needs the help of her best friends, Isabel and Darin, and a full cast of wonderfully weird characters -- from a narcoleptic mermaid to a doomed dead king -- to get the job done. Will they be able to include every one of the contest's demands in time to submit the play? Not if the Octopus has anything to say about it! This fast-paced and hilarious short is strangely satisfying and satisfyingly strange.
