"Imagine a real world with mutations all around us, these people would be the new minority group. They would have all the crappy jobs -- the kind of stuff we "normal" people wouldn’t want to do. So these people would be the plumbers, the doormen, taxi drivers... you get the idea. So where can a monster go and get a little respect?
Heck, monsters have been working in the movies for decades. But now the monsters aren't made, they are regular folks. They just have an affliction -- something that makes them look a little different from you and me. And that’s our story. These guys want their piece of the pie. They're moving on up, but not up to a deluxe apartment in the sky. They want to head out West, to the land of make believe... Hollywood California."
