Summary Life is complicated and so is love. And an increasing number of people are finding true, emotional and sexual love with objects. This emerging sexual orientation, Objectum-Sexuality (OS), is explored through five amazing characters who openly declare their love for objects, from carnival rides to cars and trains, even the Eiffel Tower - not as fetishes, but as loving life partners.To them, this love is normal and real and all they want is the freedom to 'live and love out loud' like the rest of us. Most are Animists with a belief that inanimate objects are sentient beings and therefore humans can communicate with them. And if you can communicate, then you can have a relationship.Many indigenous cultures and religious groups believe this, and children routinely have special relationships with objects. Remember Teddy and Blankie? Are you ready to challenge your outlook on love?PRODUCTION DETAILS:Real To Reel Productions for Shaw Media, Canada
