Short Cuts meets Rear Window in this hilarious but poignant debut from James Cadelli. It follows six characters in parallel and loosely-connected situations. Three travelling dudes are stranded in Hope, a small, desolate town in the mountains of British Columbia. They find shelter in the basement of an apartment building after their RV breaks down. In this building also lives Jojo, an old woman in mourning. In the apartment above is Tom, an obnoxious drug dealer who plays the piano beautifully. Managing the whole place is Marie, the superintendent (and owner of three pugs) who is all work and no play. Although they all occupy the same building, share a common resentment of their living situation, and annoy each other in the hallways, none of them realize the extent to which their lives are intertwined. Yet they all hope for a better life. And that just might mean getting out of town... by any means necessary.
James Cadelli grew up in Embrun, ON near the middle of nowhere. He used to flip burgers and edit porn. Now he spends his time drawing cartoons, making videos, and playing the violin. He also enjoys making olive bread at home. James currently resides in Montréal, QC, but you might find him living elsewhere for a bit.
