Storyline

A delusional artist is betrayed by both his distorted perceptions and his talent for creating grotesque and surreal pieces and begins to be encased in his own madness, completely cut off from the outside world and trapped in his thoughts. Inspired by intense grief, his creations take on lives of their own and present themselves as strange incarnations of their creator. His mysterious sources of sorrow and his muses from his troubled past begin to drive him into even more guilt and suicidal inquiries circulate in his mind. He begins to find a sense of relief in self-forgiveness. How will he pardon himself? Will he end it all? Will he be freed from his fragmented and bizarre perceptions? Whatever the choice he makes is, WILL HE EVEN KNOW? Written by Montgomery Cleveland

Trivia

The lead actor in this film, Joel D. Anger, actually painted the walls of his own house in order to decorate the set and location so that they would appear more bizarre and a fitting setting. He and his twin brother, Jeff, also collected various pieces of random furniture from tree lawns and derelict, decrepit properties in order to properly outfit the home and enhance the fantastic eccentricity of the environment.
