Edna, who one day finds herself locked inside a padded cell, has always been a rebellious soul. But how did she end up here? Before she can go into that, she will have to break out and regain her precious freedom. Apparently, Dr. Marcel, head of the mental institution, has eradicated her memories, in order to cover up a horrible event in Edna’s past. But what happened on that day?
Harvey is Edna’s imaginary and best friend – and he’s a stuffed toy bunny. Harvey is always within reach when Edna needs cheering up with crazy ideas and biting commentary. He’s her sidekick, “kick” being the operative word: 500 grams of deadly plush can do a surprising amount of damage, once unleashed. Harvey is the malicious voice inside Edna’s head that drives her to do things she might not do without his “well-intentioned” advice – like destroying other people’s property, lighting furniture on fire and mixing arachnids into food. Harvey is an intellectual arsonist of the purest sort and is driven by an unstoppable appetite for distruction. Truly a dangerous bunny, but on the other hand, he is very cute.
Doctor Marcel, head of the mental instituion, is the inventor of the patented Marcel electric shock therapy and the controversial “white paper method” that is designed to disable neuroses by deleting the recollection of traumatic events from the patient’s memories. Dr. Marcel was once considered a brilliant scientist but his positive reputation is a thing of the distant past. What is the embittered scientist planning with Edna?
