About the film:
World Premiere at 2014 Sundance Film Festival. A mentally unhinged factory worker must decide whether to listen to his talking cat and become a killer, or follow his dog’s advice to keep striving for normalcy.
“wild and occasionally hilarious genre crossbreed that seems tailor-made for fantastic film festivals and midnight slots”
—Boyd Van Hoeij for The Hollywood Reporter
