Abstract:

In the land of Malaria, where it is always dark and dreary, a hunchbacked lab assistant holds out hope that he can one day fulfill his dream of becoming a scientist, although an Evil Scientist, by winning the annual Evil Science Fair.

He creates a monster to enter into the science fair, and all is going according to plan, except for just one thing, his monster is not evil. She is sweet and lovable, and she wants to be an actress! Chaos rules! In the end, though, Igor finds a way to make his dream come true, and this epic comedy shows the importance of staying true to oneself.
