‘Plastic’ is a short film by Sandy Widyanata that follows Anna as she prepares for a first date. After their dinner reservation is bumped up, Anna struggles to quickly find something that will fit her. She ends up tearing a pair of jeans in the process and being unable to fit into one of her dresses.
In frustration, she slathers her face with a miracle cream, which truly does have magical properties. The cream makes her face and body parts soft and malleable and as if she was made of plastic, Anna is able to sculpt a body like the ones seen in magazines.
Anna transforms her body parts into doll-like proportions and realizes she looks nothing like herself. The end of the video reveals a charming twist that makes it a short film well worth watching.
