Local legend Stevie Blatz is known as an eccentric entertainer throughout the Bethlehem, PA region.  He’s a 27-year-old, do-it-yourself entrepreneur with a penchant for making poor business decisions.  Struggling to keep his entertainment company afloat, Stevie decides that the best course of action is to diversify, expanding his services to include snow removal, lawn care, and dishware rental.  He spends his free time as an amateur escape artist who also dabbles in stand-up comedy.  With a severe lack of focus and the weight of the world on his shoulders, Stevie is forced to move back into his childhood home where a toxic relationship develops with his understandably irritated mother.  Heartfelt and hopeless, The Professional: A Stevie Blatz Story is an entertainingly frustrating documentary.
