While Anna is preparing for a first date with Henry, a man she has secretly loved for years, everything goes wrong until she discovers the impossible — she’s suddenly able to sculpt her appearance like clay to any shape she desires.
Written and directed by Sandy Widyanata,”Plastic” is a popular short film that was released in 2008. It delves into the issue of women’s body image issues and the power of self acceptance.
Watching Anna manipulate her face and body in her bathroom — pulling at her nose until it reaches the perfect point, stretching her neck like a giraffe until it’s long and thin — is bizarre, comical and even creepy at times.
The more Anna changes her appearance, the more invigorated she feels. After all, she gives herself the body of which she’s always dreamt, and Henry is going to love it.
But the second Henry comes knocking at the door, Anna examines at her brand new body in the mirror and makes a stunning realization. And just wait until the final shot… there’s even a little twist 😉
