In Plankton we get a glimpse of the ideas and aspirations that float around at the bottom of the food chain through casual and improvisational sounding comedic dialogue, tackling insecurity and self-doubt, life choices and social hierarchies. The tiniest of organisms seem to have their own petty ideas of whos the most popular and important. And hey, in the grand scheme of things, were all specs in the vastness of the universe, arent we? Plankton allows us to take this perspective and ultimately laugh at ourselves.
Director: Timothy Rauch
