Mr. Lamb is Jean Pesce’s NYU-Tisch School of the Arts pre-thesis film. It is a dark comedy about a diner waitress named Myrna, who is in love with her pen pal -- the convicted murderer, Charles Lamb. Myrna is convinced of his innocence and their mutual love -- enough so to rebuff the romantic advances of Hank, a well-meaning cop and diner regular.
