This is a short, low-budget film, but it leaves a BIG impact!
I'm not going to give away the plot except to write:

... It was awful, in my opinion... I can't believe that they couldn't have come up with a cleaner copy. For a DVD with no extras, this was pretty edgy quality. Read morePublished on Dec 29 2003 by Dwight Jaynes
