The Shape of Water Book Summary and Movie Trailer Plot of the Book

Guillermo del Toro gives his readers a unique love story, which is set in the backdrop of the reign of America’s 36th president. In the year of 1963, the American society was still firmly gripped by the Cold War era. Within a government facility, a janitor discovers a love that can only be described as unusual, but alluring. An aquatic humanoid is held captive within the same facility and becomes the target of the janitor’s affection.

Movie Plot

In the movie adaptation, the janitor, Elisa Esposito (played by Sally Hawkins), is a mute woman who lives alone in an apartment in Baltimore. Elisa was found alone by a river as a young girl. Without any knowledge of her family, she was declared an orphan. Elisa works as a janitor in a secret government facility, during the peak of the Cold War. She as a mute utilizes sign language to communicate and while at work, her co-worker and friend Zelda Fuller (played by Octavia Spencer) translates for her. Giles, (played by Richard Jenkins) her friend and next-door neighbor is a struggling advertising illustrator.

A strange humanoid creature discovered and caught within a South American by Richard Strickland (played by Michael Shannon) who is in charge of the research project. Elisa stumbles upon the human amphibian (played by Doug Jones) and grows fond of the creature. Over time she begins visiting the creature in secret and somehow the two grow close.

General Frank Hoyt (played by Nick Searcy) intends to exploit the creature in hopes of furthering America’s position in the Space Race. Hoyt orders Strickland to carry out vivisection upon the creature. Dr. Robert Hoffstetler (played by Michael Stuhlbarg) pleads to keep the creature alive for further study. Elisa learns the general’s plan and through the aid of Giles, Zelda, and Dr. Hoffstetler help the creature to escape.

The creature lives in Elisa’s bathtub, while plans to release the creature into the open sea after some time in a nearby canal. Elisa and the creature later become romantically involved and even make love in her bathtub. Strickland eventually learns of Elisa’s plan and arrives at the moment when Elisa and the group are about to part ways with the creature. Strickland attacks the group, knocking Giles unconscious and shoots at Elisa and the creature who appears to be dead. The creature using his healing abilities heals himself and then kills Strickland.

When the police arrive with Zelda, the creature takes Elisa and escapes into the water with her. The pair disappeared into the depth of the ocean where there were never seen again.
