Completing the trilogy of dark comedy shorts that began with ‘Spider’ and ‘Bear’, Nash Edgerton’s ‘Shark’ explores the relationship of a rambunctious young couple. Jack, a serial prankster, finds his perfect match in the equally daring Rose. But the pair’s constant quest to outdo each other in the name of comedy leads them to some very troubled waters for both of them in this whimsical short with a bit of bite.
