Content warning [May contain spoilers]

"You stepped over the line." Shy, awkward, gentle Adam meets experienced, analytical Evelyn. Together they embark on an intense relationship which sees Adam go to extraordinary lengths to improve his appearance and character. Under Evelyn's subtle and insistent coaching, we witness the gradual reconstruction of Adam's fundamental moral character. At every step, we wonder how far Adam will go to prove his love for Evelyn, how far he is willing to stray from himself and his friends to mould himself into an ideal shape. Meanwhile, his best friends' engagement crumbles. 'The Shape of Things' forces us to ask ourselves; how much of yourself would you change for love? How far would you go for your art? And is there a line between the two that cannot be crossed? Love. Art. Manipulation. 'The Shape of Things' brings all three together whilst asking where the boundaries between them lie.
