Az is a hopelessly romantic (or just hopeless?) twenty-something oyster farmer, plying his trade in the southeastern France’s port city of Sète. When his mollusk-themed proposal to girlfriend Jess goes hilariously awry, his world is shattered, and in time-honored fashion, our hero retreats to eat chocolate in bed, and wallow in his heartbreak. His childhood pals are having none of his moping. The goofy assortment of self-styled tough guys, and Lila, a dancer just returned from Paris, rally around their crestfallen friend, scheming to help him out his  pathetic doldrums.

Gently upending our well-worn rom-com genre expectations, Hard Shell, Soft Shell is a fun ride throughout, offering up equal doses of comic relief, sizzling dance numbers, and lessons of the heart, set against a stunning Mediterranean backdrop.

Introduction by Harry Chotiner (VAFF).
