About the Film

“I am going to have you read from a collection of my spam emails,” the director explains as she ushers actors from Craigslist one by one into an audition room. The actors and the director search together for the human voice within nonsensical and malicious emails. All is revealed to the viewer; film equipment litters the audition room floor, a cow pasture, a sunset, a strip club… is this poetry or malware?
