Edward Scissorhands is a popular fantasy-romance film by Tim Burton that sees protagonist Edward with scissors as hands. Starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder, the film has developed a cult following and still has quite a hold on the internet given how gaga audience was for the Super Bowl advertisement.
Following a similar premise, Edgar has scissors for hands and is shunned out from society for being different and can’t do everyday menial tasks due to how sharp his hands are. The poor teen can’t even get on a bus to go to school. Seeing her son struggle, Kim then gets him a Cadillac LYRIQ, an all-electric self-driving car that can take the teen wherever he wants to – finally something his hands can’t damage!
