Ben Popik brought his former comedy troupe a challenge: the five writers would each write fifteen pages of a movie, having read only the previous writer's last five pages. They agreed with one stipulation: if they wrote the movie, he had to make it. The result is this one-of-a-kind narrative-documentary hybrid that is equal parts comedy, children's television show, love story, and supernatural adventure. Meanwhile, documentary footage provides an inside look into the creative process and the group dynamics that make collaboration between friends difficult. Writer/director Ben Popik will be available after the film for a Q&A and discussion panel.
