Storyline

Ian is struggling with being at the very lowest point in his life. He has lost all faith in the world and himself and tries to restore that by picking himself up. He begins with online dating and finds that there are some interesting people from the web.. Meanwhile, he is tortured with grief from the death of his best friend, Zeke, whom he keeps seeing (in a theater costume) everywhere. Are these visions merely in his head or has Zeke come back for vengeance? Ian will have to find the answers if he ever hopes to break this vicious cycle and survive to pick up the pieces.

24 July 2013 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Hiii, it's my first Faux Pas movie. Technical is the film good. It have a decent story and a good arrangement. The acting was very well. Definitely the panic scene's. Only the riot on the end could be more aggressive. The center of the movie is the drama get's bigger and bigger. Sometimes mixed up with hilarious scene's. There are a lot of beautiful girls in it. Awesome! If we go deeper and deeper into the movie, it get's more mysterious. You gotta see it ! There is a new project "Ovulation". I'm looking forward to his new project. I bought this movie on his website. Fast shipping and it's all regions. I hope there are coming more films from Faux Pas. And a reason to watch the other movies.
