The Spider and Her Demons

High School can be hard at the best of times but somehow Zhi juggles study, tutoring and working in her Aunt’s dumpling shop.

Zhi’s Aunt Mei has sacrificed a lot so that Zhi can attend a private school and all she asks in return is that Zhi maintain an 85 point grade average and hide the fact she has fangs, spinnerets and four prehensile limbs that emerge from her back!

Final Draft is produced and presented by Andrew Pople
