Loosely based on works from Jean-Paul Sartre and Ambrose Bierce, this pitch-black comedy from first-time writer-director Shane McGoey features six wicked vignettes and an ensemble of characters grappling with each other in a vain attempt to gain control of their lives: an unhappily married psychiatrist and his destructive patient; a lovelorn gay man and his indifferent one-night stand; a quartet of embittered friends; a disgruntled couple; and a struggling, idealistic screenwriter pitted against pompous studio executives. Their frustrated and impassioned lives intersect in surprising ways, ultimately colliding in an unexpected climax.
