Watch The Official Trailer below!

Our not so "Zen" protagonist's fuse is blown and the deleterious rampage of "shoot first, ask questions later" begins. With no idea or vague instinct of the chaotic, psychotic, distorted scene they're about to get pulled into, the three get a very rude awakening as the dutiful war veteran pursuing his quest to find his 'Sally'. bursts onto the scene demanding to know who's Happie? Answering him, they reply. “You are happy, he’s happy and everyone is happy”. This, of course, isn't the answer he'd been looking for.

Yet, things are not always as they appear, or how you personally may perceive them. That perhaps, sometimes it's best to err on the side of caution before things get DELETERIOUS.

"I'd like to thank Mr Henry Mccarter for investing money in them and believing in these young filmmakers still experimenting trying to find their voices as storytellers. We can have all these ideas as young creatives but without the right people and resources to make it happen, it means fuck ‘ol." - Babili Maseko
