The Wonder Hospital

When did the American standard of hiding one’s true status in order to project a desired image - usually that of rich, young, and successful - cross the line? Has corporate culture pushed us to the point where we can no longer consider ourselves ever to look good enough? Why do we buy into it?

The Wonder Hospital, a 3D & puppet animated film, is a surreal journey of oddity and empty illusion. In a mysterious hospital, modification of physical beauty is not what you would expect.

A girl's desire for superficial beauty leads her to chase after the luring 'after' images on a path of advertisements throughout the hospital. But in the end, she finds something unimaginable and irreversible, an unexpected journey that alters her perception of beauty.
