Windup is a very original comedy. We follow Bernie Shaddick from his tragic childhood, through to his present day pursuit of a career as an inventor. Likened to such films as "Raising Arizona" and "The Big Lebowski", gritty cohen-esque humor saturates Bernie Shaddick's life, from his encounter with mace at a potential sale, to his murderous mentors posing as his Aunt Audre and Uncle Reg. Bernie is a man who, in the face of rejection and ridicule, just "doesn't get it", and perseveres anyways. His good nature gets on the nerves of his cruel co-workers at his commercial real estate day-job. Upholding an almost delusional enthusiasm, Bernie unknowingly sells his soul with a smile! Bernie's girlfriend Latrice and roommate Stuart only accentuate Bernie's seemingly pathetic existence. Latrice, sexy in a dirty sort of way, loves Bernie, although she would prefer to love his money, if he had any. Stuart, usually clad in underpants and obsessed with the rubix-cube, lives with Bernie because it... Written by Dave Cote
