25-year-old Lionel Cosgrove has never even kissed a girl, and so is excited when the lovely Paquita, a Spanish girl who works in the corner shop, arranges a nocturnal tryst with him in the zoo. Unfortunately, Lionel's over-possessive mother, spying on them from the bushes, is bitten by a Sumatran Monkey Rat, and soon develops a craving for raw meat. Upon learning of this, Lionel tries to warn his new love of his mother's strange cannibalistic habits before it is too late.

bradea014. Lionel hears his domineering mother call his name from the house and so he starts to run up Waitoa Road. This shot was actually taken a bit further back down the street from the previous shot after he got off the tram!
bradea015. The family home! This is a real house located at Hinau Road, Hataitai, Wellington. Since the film was made there have been additional properties built in front of the house, making it quite hard to see from Hinau Road itself.
bradea016. Lionel attempts to fix the lawnmower in the front garden, not knowing he is about to get a surprise visit. Waitoa Road, Hataitai, Wellington is visible in the background.
