An 11 minute comedy about a man and his monkey puppet.

A bit of a loner in a (seemingly) cold world, Gerald has one best friend and companion – his monkey puppet, Peter.

Peter has everything that Gerald lacks: charisma, a sense of humor, the courage to talk to anyone about anything. And yet, far from impressing Gerald, the monkey puppet's efforts to connect with strangers terrify him.

Written, produced, and starring Mike Kopera, directed by Steve Kopera, and produced by Matt & John Kopera, My Friend Peter blends absurd comedy with a touching dose of humanity.
