The Rotten Apple
A week-end camping trip goes hilariously awry when the family patriarch tries to make his three adult children accept his latest, and most outrageous girlfriend. Dinner gets dropped, a boozy water fight ensues, and an estranged father and son finally confront the absurdities of their relationship.
We’re Going To Have to Ask You to Take Off Your Dignity
A routine trip through airport security goes horribly wrong when a power-hungry TSA employee gets a little too personal with a traveler’s personal belongings.
The race track provides the perfect backdrop for an unlikely meeting between an older man who’s seen too much of life and his younger counter part – who’s on the verge of great gain… or loss.
A woman pushed to the edge of loneliness chains herself to a bed in the corner of a deserted furniture section of a department store. Luckily, the only person who comes along is a man who’s also searching for something. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Against all post-apocalyptic odds, the lead actor of a ragtag theater company decides to leave the safety of his propagandistic art form behind for whatever dangers may lie on the other side of the stage door. He discovers it’s albinos vs. witch doctors, cool girlfriends vs. needy uncles in this wild weird world.
When a young girl begins a delicate relationship with the ghost of a boy who previously lived in her house, a famous spiritualist is called in. His charlatanism reveals her authentic clairvoyance and what was a frightening situation becomes the backdrop for an improbable, ironic and strangely beautiful friendship.
All We Have Is Now
Members of an up and coming rock band find themselves marooned at an empty house. Unable to get inside, they do what comes naturally: party, fight, make music. Although the house remains shut, they finally unlock the mysteries surrounding the recent death of their most talented musician.
