When a strange postcard lures Elliot Knight (Dohring) back home for his 10-year reunion, he and his high school pals learn that one of their best friends, Sonny (Oka), is missing under dubious circumstances. Determined to find their old friend, the crew stumbles upon a murder mystery that seems eerily similar to a play they performed in high school — a play Sonny wrote. But since detective work is best left to the experts, events soon spin out of control in this visually stunning, smart, and twisted comedy that will keep you guessing to the very end.
Jason Dohring (Veronica Mars), Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), Masi Oka (Heroes), Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica), Clarke Peters (The Wire), and Brian McElhaney & Nick Kocher of the internet sketch comedy group, BriTANick.
