A black as tar comedy charting the dissolution of a commune for sober living in early 90's suburban New Jersey.
"I'll never shake the quote: "Hell is other people". Every movie I make is a wrestling match with this statement. A movie about a commune in the early 90's seemed like the perfect arena for the latest match. We worked without a script or storyboards. My co-writer and I outlined the story structure; the actors and I developed the characters; and the cinematographer improvised along with the actors. The point was to create an environment that would allow chaos and life to rule the movie. Shooting a period piece,
I found it necessary to work with a news camera from the time. In the end, it's a documentary of a fictional world – one that deals with the need for family, love, and humiliation."
