SF IndieFest: MERMAIDS AND MANATEES
First show: February 09
Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rich has it all: a great house, an amazing wife, and a 7-month-old daughter named Brooke. Just as Rich’s childhood friend Benji, a brilliant, but mentally unstable out-of-work actor, comes to visit for a “boys weekend” Rich unexpectedly gets invited to meet with some high-profile investors. Without childcare plans, Rich reluctantly must leave Brooke under the care of Benji who takes Brooke on a magical, albeit dangerous journey. As Benji starts to ravish the wine cellar and more, his babysitting skills start to devolve. In a moment of insane frustration, a truly terrifying act happens that might actually be the crazy breakthrough moment Rich needs in his life.
