(Narrative, United States)  A 5-film, comic anthology on the nature of personal devolution and change—with a decidedly Southern gothic twist.

A retired U.S. senator with a dark secret, an in-school suspension teacher and his captive audience of one, two lost souls’ unlikely meeting at a roadside diner, the stomach-churning memory of True Love lost, a father’s last will and testament passed on via workshop mix tape.

RATING: Intended for Mature Audiences (includes adult language, situations, and sexuality)

Director: Chris White

Chris White has produced three feature films in recent years: the showbiz comedy CINEMA PURGATORIO (2014, co-writer, director, actor), broken-family drama GET BETTER (2012, co-writer, co-director, actor) and the spare and touching TAKEN IN (2011, writer, director). In addition, he has produced three award-winning short films: FULLY DETACHED (2013), DOBRA OJCA (2012), and GOOD LIFE (2010). Between collaborations with his producing partner and wife Emily, Chris co-produces, writes, and directs for the wildly popular web-series STAR TREK CONTINUES and speaks/teaches about cinema storytelling. He recently wrapped production on an anthology feature called UNBECOMING, which stars Michael Forest and Patti D’Arbanville.
