Description

MICHIGAN PREMIERE! Doom and gloom are on the way. The Y2K apocalypse can't be stopped. Abbie's older brother issues him the ultimate challenge before it goes down: stay on the couch until he beats the infamous Billy Mitchell record on Pac-Man by getting past level 2 No getting up, no matter what. No quitting. Abbie (JOSHUA BURGE, a regular collaborator of Michigan-based director JOEL POTRYKUS) must survive inside a rotten living room with no food or water, and numbnut friends and toxic gas getting in his face. Luckily, Abbie's secret 3D glasses begin to give him new abilities, controlling the powers of his tiny universe. --SXSW
