Slumlord is a narrative dark comedy short film that takes us on a reckless journey through a day in the life of Scott Roberts, a luckless gambler. Beaten and humiliated by a tall and scary man named Gary, Scott has two choices: sweet-talk his mom out of twenty G's, or grab his wife and run like hell. Scott comes across an opportunity for some quick cash, working as an apartment manager. Easier said than done. He finds himself protégé to Kalis Muhn, a sociopathic slumlord determined to push Scott to the limit and beyond. Between a trial by hammer, man-sized "dog" graves, and a three-story fall, Scott discovers there's no such thing as rock bottom.
