Sean is a Chinese-American amateur surfer in Hawaii who, after a series of bad relationships, is afraid to open up his heart again. Things change when he comes across a kind-hearted tattoo artist named Emily. She's beautiful, yet down-to-earth, a good girl with a mild playful side. Everything is perfect until, one day, Emily confesses that she is a 'nail clipper monster,' a special sub-type of humans that only eats nail clippers. But Sean finds this very hard to believe. Can love help him override his suspicions and make him trust her and this tall tale?
