It started as a bedtime story. A story about a bunny that Mary’s mom used to tell her every night. And it was a pretty weird one (with way more digressions about mortgage rates than you’d ever expect in a children's story). But when her mom died, Bouncy Bunny became a way for Mary to remember her. So one day she decided to write it all down. And then, to her great surprise... it took on a life of its own. First as a heavily-edited children’s book, then as a cutesy animated musical, then as a terrifying energy drink commercial – every absurd adaptation creates a new form of the bunny. But does the story even belong to Mary anymore? A heartfelt comedy about what makes stories personal, and why we share them.
