Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A socially inept video store clerk forges a tenuous friendship with a pretty downtown hipster after being fired from his job in Oregon-based director James Westby's quirky tale of geek love among the twenty-something set. Scotty Pelk (Melik Malkasian) may not be able to relate to his peers at the video store so well, but his knowledge of film is encyclopedic. A nuisance to the customers and an endless source of annoyance to his coworkers, Scotty takes solace in a friendly hipster named Niko (Tyler Gannon) after being unceremoniously fired the job that he loves. With his film website failing and no one but Niko to turn to, Scotty's feeling for Niko begin to move beyond the realm of friendship and into the romantic despite the constant interference of Niko's obsessive ex-boyfriend Brandon - who isn't about to let the girl he loves end up with a video store reject who can't even find friends on the internet. But thanks to Niko, Scotty's life is taking a turn for the better, and after experience what a small dose of confidence can do for a man's sense of self-worth Scotty is finally prepared to show just how far a deep love of film and a keen eye for criticism can actually get one in life.
