Storyline

Jessie deals with a bad breakup, by purchasing a sheet of acid to share with his friends back home in Missouri. He hopes this will erase the bad memory of his college girlfriend, delivering the heartbreaking news to him, during sex. Departing New Orleans, Jessie detours onto Route 61, seeking a change of routine from the monotony of the Interstate. Unexpectedly, his engine fails at a forgotten trailer park in Cleveland, Mississippi. Fearful he's about to be harmed by bikers, Jessie exchanges hits of L.S.D. for safe passage home. During the ebb and flow of the day, Jessie experiences the extraordinary in the pedestrian, whilst resurrecting the lives of many. Inspired by a true misadventure. Written by Trailer Park Jesus

Great Comedy/Characters and Fun
3 January 2012 | by drherb_1216See all my reviews

Fun upbeat comedy with quirky characters, trippy visuals and a delicious plot will delight your senses. High production value, superb direction and pain staking attention to detail make this feel like a true major/independent film and not an ultra-low budget movie which was shot for pennies. Comedy is a tough thing to pull off. The actors do a good job of developing archetypal characters without going over the top--avoiding a real danger--destroying the believability of the narrative. I laughed out loud several times and was invested in finding out what would become of each character. Give this movie a chance to you into a fan--you won't be disappointed.
