Victor is socially awkward. He spends all of his time watching old movies on TV with his best friend, his rat that he named Frankenstein. Victor becomes so detached that he can't tell real life from the old movies that he watches. He begins to receive transmissions from the TV and then is haunted by his dead mother before he realizes that if he can't make friends, he would just "make" one. Things are great until even his own creation thinks that he is a poor excuse for a man.
