Director Statement

Our main character Johnny Skinner reflects my hometown of Stockton CA. He represents a depressed town with little opportunity where masculinity is the main source of pride and cheating/stealing is sometimes the only way to get by. I believe laughter is the best weapon against impossibly challenging situations. It's also a great show of defiance and strength towards all that life has to throw at us. We hope you laugh with us!
