Bushtits Title - sub in white.png

A Fedora turns Les's life into a Film Noir movie!

Dollar store employee ventures into the world of pet murders and the "DeLorean" is his new fedora.



When Les, a social recluse, buys the iconic fedora worn by famed 1950’s movie detective Dana Andrews, the lines between reality and film noir begin to blur as Les launches an investigation into a series of suspicious pet deaths around his apartment building. Dial P for Pet Detective and “Say goodbye to my furry friend” as two actors and thirteen crazy characters take you on a thrill ride through a mad-cap caper of stylistic fantasy with bust-a-knee-cap laughs.
