It's the Wild West, circa 1870. Samuel Alabaster, an affluent pioneer, ventures across the American frontier to marry the love of his life, Penelope. As his group traverses the west, the once-simple journey grows treacherous, blurring the lines between hero, villain and damsel.
Tyler joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn't know. As soon as they get there, it's clear that (1) he's the only black guy, and (2) it's going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can't help but feel uneasy in "Whitesville." The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler's precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.Written by
Tyrel is the only black male in a group of white birthday revellers in a secluded cabin.
The movie shows Tyrel's uneasiness in being amongst this group, having probably never been exposed to such group before. As the movie unfolds, Tyrel got drunk and lost all inhibition and there we see the ugly side of someone not belonging in a group situation. Interesting look at the differences of culture, through music and substance abuse, ultimately showing that we are more alike than not.
