In this poetic trip around the world, the oyster – with its sensual and lavish associations – acts as metaphor to explore human desires and drives, linking stories of a New York burlesque dancer, French Michelin-starred chefs, a Swedish oyster diver, a Japanese pearl hunter and a terminally ill English psychologist. The protagonists have their own special connection to the oyster, revealing their hopes, ambitions, and existential fears. This cinematic documentary explores the intricate nature of our deepest yearnings and quest for fulfilment. Metro Detroit premiere.
