If you had to be transformed into an animal for the rest of your life, which animal would you choose? David (Colin Farrell) has chosen a lobster, because they live for over 100 years and always remain fertile. Living out the rest of his days as a lobster will be David’s fate if he fails to find the perfect romantic partner in his 45-day stay at The Hotel, by order of The City. There’s quite a strict daily regimen for life in this hotel and the pursuit of a mate is a tricky one, especially since compatibility (right down to sharing the same physical impediment) is paramount. When David discovers a group of rebels who live in the woods surrounding the hotel, he starts to question the norms of this dystopian society in which couples rule and single people are a threat to be eliminated.
