"I had created her.
She is my handiwork."
Jeff, a confused, very handsome high-school boy takes a ceramic class,
and meets a fat, unhappy girl named Ellen. Although his intentions in
the beginning are really kind and generous, his increasing power over
her changes him into a dangerous tyrant. This is a modern re-telling of
the Pygmalion/Galatea story.
