Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Julian Nitzberg made his directorial debut with this low-budget 16mm "white trash black comedy." The drug bust of speed-merchant Dean (Judson Mills) is taped by a reality TV show in the style of Cops. When this footage is telecast, Dean's mom dies of a heart attack, so his wife Sandra (Mary Sheridan) has to raise money for both bail and a funeral. After Sandra and younger sis Amanda (Mary Lynn Rajskub) get wasted on pot and wine coolers, they don weird costumes to conceal their identities and exit to rob a local convenience store. But another thief beats them to the store. Unaware that she knows this thug, Sandra shoots, killing him, and they dig an immense hole to hide both the body and the bloody automobile. Shown at the 1998 Montreal World Film Festival.
