It is 1910 in Paris France, and when an experiment goes wrong with a wacky inventor an unusual creature is “born”.
What once was a flea has now been giant-sized and has a lot of surprises in store. Of course, who wouldn’t be afraid of something that is scary looking and well a giant flea? Lucille sees the good inside this creature that no one else does and then shares it with her friends, the real side of this ‘Monster”.
