In a world where monsters and humans share an uneasy co-existence, Gord's family is dismayed to find that their new baby brother is a monster. This leaves Gord – who has only ever seen his little brother as wonderful - with no choice but to head out on the road to find the City of Monsters, the rumoured haven for all monster-kind. Along the way, they learn that the world is a strange place, and home and family are both what you make them.

Advisory: there are a few mildly scary moments (encounters with monsters)

Director's Bio: 
Measuring in at a height of six feet seven inches tall, Jeremy Lutter understands the benefit of standing out in a crowd. He studied creative writing in his hometown at the University of Victoria.  Since graduating, his work has been seen on The Movie Network, MuchMusic, MTV, CBC, and Bravo!, and has screened at festivals around the world.

 Jeremy pitched the MPPIA Short Film Award at the 2010 Whistler Film Festival and won funding and in-kind services to make a short film called Joanna Makes A Friend. That film was a huge success and went on to screen at over 20 film festivals world wide (including R2R) and winning several awards--notably the Audience Choice Award at both TIFF Kids & Victoria Film Festival.  Telefilm Canada took notice and presented Joanna Makes A Friend at the Cannes Film Market as a part of their "Not Short on Talent" program in 2012 and he return to Cannes with Floodplain an NSI Dramaprize short film in 2013.
