Production Description

Casting "Legs" a short horror film about earning a mother's love. Synopsis: There's nothing kind in Timothy’s tween world. His neighborhood is new, his classmates exist only to abuse him, his grades are below average and that’s not good for his health because Timothy’s parents are a bit more than abusive, a bit more than strange. “The young ones are the sweetest, the fat ones are the meatiest, the kind ones are the easiest,” is how the lullaby Timothy's mother sings to him goes. As Mrs. Andrews investigates the source of Timothy’s daily bruises, she quickly becomes a part of a nightmare.
