Matt and Owen are high school best friends and social outcasts whose only salvation and saving grace is film. They constantly quote, watch, and re-enact scenes from their favorite movies. As high schoolers, they lack a full understanding of the outside world, so they turn to film to look for solutions to the real issues they face (as maybe we all do at times, for better or worse).
When their student film isn't well received and the bullying increases, Matt (played by director Matthew Johnson) and Owen (Owen Williams) decide to make a revenge fantasy in which they get payback on 'The Dirties' by killing them. The revenge flick starts off as a joke for both boys, but slowly the joking stops and the threat of real violence begins. If the only way you understand the world is through film, it's only a matter of time before reality and fiction overlap.~ FT
