Justin Long (Die Hard 4.0, Accepted) and Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless) lead the unique modern-day parable that follows Frank (Long), an opportunistic insurance lawyer, who thinks he’s in for the time of his life when he goes out on the town to celebrate an upcoming promotion with his co-worker, Jeff (Faison). But their night takes a turn for the bizarre when Frank is dosed with a hallucinogen that completely alters his perception of the world, taking him on a psychedelic quest through board meetings, nightclubs, shootouts, and alternate dimensions. As Frank ping-pongs between reality and fantasy, he finds himself on a mission to find a missing girl, himself… and his wallet.
Justin Long is no stranger to the screen with wide-ranging credits that include Galaxy Quest, Jeepers Creepers, Drag Me To Hell, Die Hard 4.0 and Accepted. He frequently appears in Kevin Smith and Judd Apatow comedies and has acted alongside Drew Barrymore, Christina Ricci, Liam Neeson, and Ginnifer Goodwin. He currently hosts Life Is Short with Justin Long, a podcast where he talks to celebrity guests about the meaning of life, according to them.
The winning cast of the film is rounded out by Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy, Braveheart, Sin City), Sheila Vand (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, the upcoming Snowpiercer series) Katia Winter (The Catch, Sleepy Hollow series) and Ronnie Gene Blevins (Joe, True Detective).
