As subversive and affecting as independent cinema gets, this first-time feature from a group of Chicago-area natives tackles the many annoyances and social ills of modern times while recalling the frustrated, but focused anarchy of Falling Down.

Getting fired from his job at a butcher shop is the last straw for a Chicago slacker who is already at his wit’s end thanks to overly helpful parents and faulty modern conveniences like CrossFit and GrubHub.  He impulsively steals the shop’s inventory and decides to distribute it throughout the rougher areas of the city to mixed reactions.  His good-natured yet off-kilter mission grows increasingly darker and more dangerous as the night goes on, climaxing in a scene of primal rage that represents the frustrations of modern youth.  An official selection of 2015 Fantasia Film Festival.

Screening with:
“Walden Pink”
