Jeff Clark, Paul Mahaffy / Fiction / English

Savage deconstruction of the American Dream set in the murky world of pyramid selling schemes.

Desperate, sad sack salesman Thomas has staked the last of his money on the titular wonderdrug. But where’s his stock, and why does no-one ever return his calls? By turns hilarious and almost impossible to watch, producer director writer Jake Mahaffy’s remarkably sensitive, razor-sharp satire proves a tiny budget really need not be a hindrance if you’ve got the cast and your script’s an absolute winner.
