Director Statement

Nowadays, certain sacrifices must be done to make a living and provide for an ever expanding family. Charlie thought he was helping his meth addicted friend by showing him support. Proper support. The type of support that comes with a price. Swift decisions are made. Right or wrong? Cheddar or Monterey Jack? Weed or meth? Life or death? Car or SUV? Maybe your children could go on to university when they grow up if you happen to have the money for the right house, the right perspective, and the right motorized vehicle. One exchange for another comes to an unexpected halt after an intervention to help a friend kick a bad habit leads him to kick the bucket instead. Harry's two closest friends, Charlie and Keaton, must dispose of his body for their own good.
