Are you a freak? Where do you belong in the world? !! What happens when a spoon can’t serve and scoop!! On a beautiful Greek island the lonely sweet freak Spoon finds her island identity.








Spoon, a sweet soul with a natural affinity towards nature, travels to the Mediterranean. On the island, her attempts to make friends fail miserably as she isn’t the spoon people want her to be. Awkward and totally inept at scooping, Spoon finds her true happiness with the animals of the island.

A bizarre story of identity set in a beautiful Greek landscape, Clamato is a short and strange film about one character’s journey to finding their place in the world.
