The story of Edward Scissorhands
Edward may look human, but he is no ordinary boy, his scissors for hands attest to that. One day, Edward finds himself left unfinished and alone in a castle on the hill following the death of his eccentric inventor.
When Edward receives an invite from a gentle townswoman to live with her suburban family, he struggles to fit in as his curious appearance raises many questions, but can the community see past Edward’s appearance and discover his innocence within?
Through compassion, empathy and self-discovery, Edward is on a journey to be understood and accepted by others. Although he may be unfinished, he has a heart as big as any human.
