Chip and Liza are in love, but their life is no bed of roses: he flushes septic systems for a living, while she supplements their income with a sugar daddy. When Liza suggests that they relieve her sleazy benefactor of a stack of cash, Chip reluctantly agrees. But things soon get out of hand and Chip finds himself on the run with an unknown girl in his trunk and furious Liza on his tail.
Writer/director Trent Haaga is no stranger to Grossmann audience, having visited the festival in 2008 as the co-writer of Deadgirl, while his directorial debut Chop was screened at Grossmann three years later. In his new film, he offers bucketloads of dark humour, bizarre situations and blood-spattering action, carried by stellar acting performances by three ferocious ladies AnnaLynne McCord, Sheila Vand and Alisha Boe and the endearingly confused Matthew Gray Gubler.

Producing, co-producing and service producing credits include Simon Rumley's Red, White and Blue, Julian Richard's Darklands, Paul Sarossy’s Mr In-Between and Michael Radford’s The Merchant of Venice.
