Director Statement

This film was written in the spirit of Martin McDonagh's dark comedies; his short Six Shooter as well as his stage play The Hangmen. A story capturing the comedic narrative of a blue collar laborer whose morbid work goes overlooked. That thirst for validation is the heart of the movie and that path to its inevitable conclusion; validation is fleeting.
