Shroom Omelette

Shroom Omelette

Nominee | Runtime 8:21

Shroom Omelette is an 8 minute short film based loosely on the events of my grandfather (Katie Brown- Director) who, after foraging for mushrooms accidentally made himself a shroom omelette and experienced psychedelics for the first time at the age of 75.
The film follows Lawrence as he goes about his daily life before it descends into chaos during a meet the parents dinner with his son’s new boyfriend. Between the antics of the boyfriend trying to impress and with the shrooms beginning to hit Lawrence, as they sit down to eat it, becomes near impossible for his wife, Winnie, and son, Johnny to hold the meal together. Leading to a very fun and rather wild experience for all involved.
