Bela is a young girl who tried to take her own life by jumping off London's Tower Bridge. Her plans are interfered with in the most brazen way: the eccentric but undoubtedly brilliant scientist Goodwin Baxter heroically pulls her body from the water and revives her in a method that could only have been born of his fevered imagination. Alive but with a child, Bela Baxter begins to explore the world anew, and soon embarks on a journey of sexual discovery through the surreal 19th century. Europe. Based on Alasdair Gray's novel, Bad Things is a punk version of Frankenstein that turns into a deeply feminist tale about the right to control your own body and mind.
