Patrick writes as therapy, specifically about his and Leonard's lives. Younger by one year, Leonard, who works a day job as a waiter, is, on the other hand, a thief, both in property and personal crime. Because of their relationship, Patrick ends up taking the fall and the associated seven year jail sentence for Leonard's latest crime. On an unrelated incident, Leonard ends up having mugger's remorse after the fact when he recognizes his latest victim as one the nicer customers in the restaurant where he works.

wow, the best film I have seen in a long time!!
9 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I work in Whistler and was talked into going to a film festival film called THE ZERO SUM. It rocks!!! go see it! Where is this film coming out??? This film was better than any movie I have seen in a while. I am new to this but a new found fan of "indy" films!! Leonard is played by the guy from TRAINSPOTTING named spud. He is amazing as the mugger who starts to fall in love with a woman he robbed. His brother is in prison writing a book and he pretends it is his. Really great ending too! Other famous people are the rapper YOUNG MC who did "bust a move" and wrote Ton Loc's songs. Oh and the guy from Invasion is in it too named Tyler Labine.
