Festival starts in


In this romantic thriller, down-on-his-luck actor JAMES has a small role in a funky little theatre’s production of Macbeth. The only bright spot is a budding romance with JEN, the gorgeous young actress who plays Lady Macbeth. Unfortunately, she’s also married to DUKE – rich, pompous, owner of the theatre, and lead actor in the play.

Together, James and Jen hatch a plan to murder her husband – and take his fortune and his theatre. However, after bizarre encounters with the actresses who play the THREE WITCHES (who appear to actually be witches off stage as well as on), and as James’s best friend DREW begins to get suspicious,
James and Jen realize their lives are beginning to parallel the story of Macbeth, where “blood will have blood.” But try as they might, they can’t seem to break out of a story that’s hurtling towards an inevitable, tragic conclusion.

Director Jesse Keller will attend the film screening.
