Synopsis

Racing across Los Angeles in one, unwieldy day, documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo must race from Beverly Hills to Watts — and places in between — in order to get Milo’s brother Leo from jail to rehab before 8pm, or Leo goes to prison for three years. A story inspired by true events, the trio documents their trip from a suburban police station in Calabasas through mansions in Beverly Hills, East LA chopshops, rural wastelands, and housing projects in Watts as they attempt to raise the $5,000 required to get Leo into the rehab clinic. Along the way they encounter dozens of colorful characters, each with their own anomalous perspective on Leo’s larger-than-life personality and style, and each with their own excuse for why they cannot help out. In the end, it may take the desperate irony of a drug deal to get the necessary funds to send Leo to rehab.

What keeps the film on a relentlessly exciting and engaging trajectory is the speedy performance of Shawn Andrews as Leo and a cast of characters who he meets along the way– Milo and Bella along with married women, crazed lawyers, spiritual friends, unsavory mechanics and understanding police. Mix in a few classic cars, a slobbering dog, and Bella’s initial distaste for the task at hand and you wind up with an interesting movie. Featuring a unique cinematography style used by director/actor Tao (Milo) to its’ emotional conclusion, this film is a portent for an evolution in American filmmaking.
Making this film infinitely more interesting for you the reader or film-goer is a fab contest that gives YOU the opportunity to create and submit a video talking about what “your fix” is and why.
