Guerilla Opera
This dark comedy tells the story of a scientist whose experiments of implanting human glands into the bodies of animals prove overly successful. After luring a dog into his apartment and performing a successful transplant the scientist, his assistant and the housekeeper have their hands full with their test subject. The grandeur of the scientific achievement is overshadowed by the misery of living with the half-dog/half-woman whose varied appetites and manipulations prove disastrous for all.
