The Trailer

About

A victim of childhood bullying decides she will no longer suffer silently in this darkly comic story of revenge and Christmas.
The film was shot over nine days in beautiful Austin Texas, The story follows Holly, a girl you would probably never notice, but she would notice you. Holly looks like she was home schooled until she was thirty and we quickly learn that she's seriously damaged goods. She's not okay, but she sort of almost starts to become okay after she encounters the man that was her childhood bully and deals with him in a fashion that her therapist (if she had a therapist) would definitely not approve of. After that episode, she becomes more empowered in her regular life and her dealings with other seeming bullies she finds there. But it's a slippery slope, revenge, and when you choose violence as a means to end, well it usually doesn't end well. NO SPOILERS here, that's just life.

Maybe.
The idea originated from an episode of Project Rant that Rafael and I worked on together. Project Rant is a hilarious webseries that takes craigslist-style anonymous internet rants by real people and has actors perform them as monologues. The rants have to be word-for-word, true to the original content, but Rafael and I took some liberties with how we presented the material, adding the idea of this girl just waiting in a parking lot...with a baseball bat. Afterward, we found the idea of this character lingered. Youtube commenters seemed to agree, it seemed there could be an audience for more of her.

Holly isn't at all the same as the person in the rant, but it was the spark for the entire premise of our script. So in a way, I guess you could say this film is based on a true story.

The film is set around Christmastime. I hope you enjoy it. –JMJ
