Earlier this year, Neal Jones' body was forever changed by a surgery. This 4-minute, satirical doc explores how Neal's life has changed.
Shot by Sophia and directed and edited by Michael, the film features family guest appearances by Neal's mother, Brenda Jones and his brother, Troy Jones. It also includes visits from Johannes Grenzfurthner and Jim McDonough.

For the last year or two, I've gotten to know Neal Jones and his courageous journey. When I heard about his short, Umbilicus Desidero , I knew I had to see it even if it wasn't something that I would typically cover at PopHorror.
