Plot & Details
A harmless kook turns out to not be as harmless as expected in this independent thriller. Tony (Peter Ferdinando) is a mild mannered, severely withdrawn man in his early 40s who has trouble relating to other people, doesn't communicate well with strangers and can't hold on to a job. Tony relies on public assistance to pay for his tiny flat, and he spends his days wandering the streets while watching a steady stream of action movies at night. One evening, Tony invites a pair of ne'er-do-wells back to his apartment, and we soon learn his secret -- beneath Tony's benign exterior is a man with a violent temper, and when his guests make him angry, he kills them in cold blood. This isn't the first time this has happened, and we follow Tony as he deals with the aftermath of his crime and prepares for his next outburst. The first feature film from director Gerard Johnson, Tony received its North American premiere at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival.
