Armless tells the story of a man who suffers from Body Integrity Identity Disorder (B.I.I.D.), a real-life psychological condition in which an individual paradoxically doesn't feel "whole" unless he loses one or more major limbs. When he leaves his wife and goes to find a doctor willing to amputate his arms, it triggers a twisted romp filled with mistaken identities, missed chances, and tragic consequences. Strange as it sounds, this real-life condition has sprung up in pop culture with increasing frequency-in episodes of Nip/Tuck and Grey's Anatomy among others. Unlike many pop culture treatments of B.I.I.D., which aim to shock, Armless explores the metaphorical resonance of this psychological condition-as a symbol for the secrets that all of us have. It is a quirkily funny, strangely poignant story about love, lies, marriage...and amputation.
