Fearless underground filmmaker Guiseppe Andrews steps back behind the camera to deliver the kind of extreme gross-out thrills only hinted at in 2003's Trailer Park in a tragicomic tale of life along the Ventura Highway. When a birthday camping trip goes bad and his son is killed in a tragic accident, a retired police officer finds the overwhelming pain too much to bear. Meanwhile, a homebound father longing to relive the sexual conquests of his youth fulfills his fantasies with an imaginary prostitute named Serenity, and a French dwarf struggles to finish his screenplay concerning the strange adventures of a half-man/half-stuffed-animal chauffer.
