Jerry Powell is a misanthropic grifter with memory distrust syndrome. His unofficial sidekick is Fritz. When the two are sent to deliver a package by the money laundering Ariel, they come to terms that this latest score is something more than they bargained for. Written by
Jerry Powell is based off a character Joey Halter would slip into on a daily basis. While living at a commune with Halter, writer/director Mike Cuenca would engage Halter into participating in conversations as Jerry Powell. Much of it Cuenca would work into the screenplay he wrote for Halter to star in. See more »

It's really amazing what people can do with limited budgets, if they have a vision. Led by some very talented actors and an obviously talented director, this insane genius of a movie deals with a slightly delusional small-time crook and his misadventures. It was really quite funny and had the audience laughing from start to finish. Without giving away too much, let's just say that "Jerry" is a gas-huffing semi-schizoid lunatic who barely has control of his life, and that he's surrounded by equally disastrous characters, none o whom have a grasp on much either. Add to that some seriously deranged relationship issues and you've got a lot of fun... If you're looking for a fun indie movie with a bizarre plot and sharp turns of phrase throughout, then look no further.
