fka ‘McMEEKIN FINDS OUT’

Comedy, 3 women 3 men, 90-100 min.

SYNOPSIS

When Guy McMeekin had his hands, he could handle most anything.  Now his hands are broke.  So when his daughter comes home from a night out confessing a terrible crime, how’s he supposed to handle that?  Or wait…was a crime committed on her?  This doesn’t make sense.  What’d she say again?  Is she using that word right?  Let’s not lose our heads here.  We gotta find out the truth is the thing.  So…say that again.

Everyone is busted up and out of their element in this Pittsburgh-centric dark comedy about forgiveness, duct tape, the elk-like beauty of football, and the head-spinning absurdity of blaming the victim.
