seal boy



In a barely altered reality, all parents are open to lawsuits for the most minor misbehavior of their children.  This is more complicated for Meg as an unexpected complication emerges: she gives birth to a seal.  Can she avoid liability, and can keep her darkest fears of motherhood from becoming reality?  A hilarious, audacious, and heartfelt look at the way we fetishize motherhood and the struggle that ensues.
