Starring Oscar® nominee Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network) and comedian Mike O’Connell (Funny People) director Sol Tryon’s critically acclaimed debut feature is a timeless fairytale with a biting sense of humour, sure to be a cult classic.

When self-proclaimed genius K. Roth Binew (O’Connell) learns his life will be cut short by a grave but unnamed illness, he decides to go out in style – with a living wake. Accompanied by his faithful assistant Mills (Eisenberg), K.
