Parental scare tactics come true in Luke Taylor and Chris Barrett’s fable Cautionary Tales, about a lonely young man who made a stupendously goofy face as a kid... and then, just as his mother warned him, was forced to live with that expression forever when it froze into place. But all is not lost.

Turns out not he’s not the only person who grew up in a similar predicament, as we learn in this unexpectedly uplifting short that makes use of some pretty remarkable prosthetics. (You can check out a making-of video here.)
