"Camille is a young high school girl who is studying for her exams. Bored by her work, Camille has a look into the fridge and finds a live lobster."

AA: Camille plays with the lobster she finds in the icebox but when it returns her kiss with a bite she unceremoniously throws it into the boiling pot. A study in contrasts: surface sweetness with an unblinking flipside of callous cruelty. The style, the art, and the technique are excellent.
