The rest of the movie is the standard very bad, short on budget trying to be cute hipster nonsense that can't interest any viewer with an IQ above sea level at all. The horrible thing is that the director hasn't even tried to convince you this should be taken as anything but a film shot in someone's backyard... it has been a long time since I cried, but this movie was such a stink bomb that I did....
