Synopsis
On its surface, this animated sci-fi tells the story of Deborah, a lonely and disenfranchised tattoo artist who endeavors to save herself and her town from an alien invasion. The aliens come in the form of large cats, cackling witches, and never-ending snakes; what’s more, these dangerous invaders have harnessed the media as a means to hypnotize humanity into submission. Deborah must learn to resist their control and convince others to do the same. LAVA playfully speaks to the different mechanisms of control that act upon society and the need to unite against them.
