Washington, DC-area premiere!
A rough-and-tumble portrait of a couple of hustlers in Hyattsville, Maryland, this festival favorite is the debut of local filmmakers Joe Frank and Zachary Reed. Floyd dreams of his prized 1,000-pound hog becoming the Washington Redskins' mascot. Two single fathers, Rico and Scooby, look to make a better life, scheme to sell their new dog. Employing neighborhood characters and nonprofessional actors, this loosely improvised film is a unique and unpredictable delight.
