"Wear your heart on your sleeve." That's the saying. But in BONDING, people wear their anxiety on their chests - in the form of a parasite that shows everyone just what you're feeling on the inside ... WEAR YOUR LOVE ON YOUR CHEST
A man, a woman--and their parasites. Marcus has been alone since the loss of his closest friend and has just recently entered into the dating scene, while Laura has drifted in and out of relationships since high school. They meet, they have a great first date, and Marcus almost dies--because the slug-like parasite that everybody carries in this world nearly rejects him, its host. Bonding is a funny, quirky, and honest look at love, in a world where everyone wears their anxiety, not on their sleeves, but on their chest like big ol' leeches.
