Storyline

Carty Fox has struggled with his drinking and the blackouts that attend it for as long as he can remember. But now, having jumped into the sober world one more time, he attempts to find a tiny handhold with which he can pull himself out of the gloom and into a more normal life. But what does that normal life look like? And how does he learn to live in it with his new son and discouraged wife? For Carty, the answer arrives in the form of a message written on a twenty-dollar bill. A message which, much to the chagrin of his family and friends, begins to intrigue him, to take hold of him, and finally drag him into an obsession. An obsession that leads him on a journey into a Lynchian landscape of shame, rage, and pain. A journey that forces him to reflect on his own life and, perhaps, to catch sight of the shadowy person he has imprisoned for all these years in his drunken state of mind. But will the experience of looking at the man in the mirror set him free or send him over the edge ... Written by Walter Spring

How he get $500k to make this film?
21 December 2009 | by indiefan77See all my reviews

I watched this film in Michigan this past March and I must say I was really looking forward to seeing this film based off the synopsis. I thought it sounded really cool and just couldn't wait to see the film.

That being said, I was very disappointed in it. The storyline ended up being pretty lame, the acting was decent, but b/c the story was so lame it didn't really matter. The film was long and boring I just couldn't wait for it to end.

I think Chopper Burnet is a pretty cool guy. He seemed to know a lot about the industry and I found him to be a very likable guy, however, this movie just left me scratching my head as to how he got this thing financed. I heard the budget was $500k.
