When I first saw this in my email this morning I thought it was news on the flick Red & Blue Marbles which is about a students deciding whether to stay on a dying Earth or to sell themselves into corporate slavery for off-planet transit.. but no luck. Instead, we've got something better, from the director of The Living and the Dead, Simon Rumley, comes the digs on his next film which our friend Tim League over at the Alamo Drafthouse will be executive producing.

Set in, Austin, the film is a slacker revenge movie, a tightly woven darkly emotional tale about the lives of three youbng people, Erica, Franki and Nate whose lives intertwine in a fateful, tragic way and head down a rocky and violet road to a heart-rending oblivion.


Erica
 (Amanda 
Fuller)
 lives 
rent‐free
 in
 the 
local
 co‐op, 
but
 spends her
 nights
 trawling
 the
 bars
 and
 beds
 of
 Austin. 

Damaged, 
emotionally
 withdrawn,
 never 
really
 connecting
 with
 anyone, 
and 
sleeping
 with
 multiple
 men
 is
 just 
what
 she
 does... 
until 
she 
meets
 the
 older
 and
 mysterious
 Nate
 (Noah 
Taylor),
 working 
in
 a
 hardware
 store,
 but
 with
 an
 “honorable
 discharge”
 from Iraq.


 Despite
 his
 quiet
 air
 of danger,
 Nate’s
 the
 only
 guy
 who
 doesn’t
 seem
 to
 want
 to 
get
 her 
into
 bed 
at 
the 
first 
opportunity, 
and
 the
 two
 form
 a
 hesitant
 bond.


 But
 one 
of 
Erica’s 
casual
 sexual
 encounters 
is 
about
 to
 bite 
back.





Franki
 (Marc
 Senter) 
is 
a
 young, 
hot‐headed
 wannabe 
rock
star
 trying
 to
 make 
it
 big.
 Looking
 after
 a 
sick 
mother 
and 
estranged 
from 
his 
long term girlfriend, 
he
 “shared” 
Erica
 with 
his
 buddies
 one
 drunken
 vening. 

Discovering
 that
 he
 is
 HIV
 Positive
 throws 
his
 already 
crazy
 world
 into 
a
 spin, 
and
 in
 Franki’s
 eyes
 there
 is 
only
 one 
person
 to
 blame...
