These 14 minutes are the 4th short film effort by writer and director Hala Matar, but what I saw here in this film from last year does not make me think she is ready for full feature films yet. Even with a fairly famous actor like Gubler plus Johnny Knoxville, this did not become an interesting watch.

A fairly forgettable short film. Not recommended, unless you really are a huge Gubler or Knoxville fan.
