Who would think that losing a part of yourself would make you whole? I'm not speaking of a negative character trait, a dreadful part of the past, or an undesirable lover. I'm speaking more along the lines of a leg, hand, foot, or arm; a part of the body that you actually need to function efficiently. The disorder is called Bodily Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID). It is the strong desire to electively amputate a portion of the body to fit the ideal bodily construction in one's mind. People who suffer from this disorder often outwardly pretend they have a missing limb several times a day. Often the wannabe pursues dreadful and drastic methods for accomplishing their desire. As serious as this disorder can be, Sneaky Little Sister Films has created a comical perception that is light-hearted and tragically funny.

Emily (played by Robin Honan) is a bright-eyed woman with springy, red hair and a dark secret: she likes to pretend she doesn't have a right arm. Tucking her arm deep into her blouse, Emily applies make-up and clasps her necklace around her neck. Her blind date, Jack (played by Steven Anacker), arrives and she quickly generates a right arm. Throughout their date, Emily discretely and selectively uses her left arm, often leaving her right arm dead at her side. Jack, who is completely unaware of her odd behavior, ironically starts a conversation concerning how people should stop talking about actions and act upon them. These words speak to Emily who has undoubtedly built up a strong desire to act upon becoming an amputee.
