Synopsis:

DEADHAND follows the story of Itagaki, an ex-scientist, in his search for his missing wife Josephine. Along the way, he teams up with Maria, a young Hispanic prostitute who had a life-altering encounter with Josephine: they traded arms.

It is revealed that Josephine has a complete robo-prosthetic body; only her brain is human. In an attempt to regain her full human form, Josephine offers Maria money and freedom from her life of prostitution in exchange for her human body. Maria, questioning her own humanity, agrees to do it.

The surgery does not go according to plan, and the unskilled crooked scientist performing the operation can only successfully transplant their arms. Maria has lost contact with Josephine and the scientist when Itagaki shows up at her brothel. She agrees to help him with the hope that he will be able to complete the operation, and provided he pays what Josephine promised. However, things go awry when Maria develops feelings for Itagaki and discovers the mysterious circumstances that led to her own birth.

Will be shot starting weekends in late January / early February in Montclair / Bloomfield / Jersey City area.
