A micro budget film made by a man with 15 years of sobriety, The Twenty has been making the rounds of the national festival circuit for the past year. It has won awards and high praise from those who have seen it. The following is a synopsis of the story:
Carty Fox has struggled with his drinking and the blackouts that attend it for as long as he can remember. But now, having jumped into the sober world one more time, he attempts to pull himself out of the gloom and into a more normal life. But what does that normal life look like? For Carty, the answer arrives in the form of a message written on a twenty-dollar bill. A message which begins to intrigue him, to take hold of him, and finally drag him into an obsession. An obsession that leads him on a journey into a Lynchian landscape of shame, rage, and pain. A journey that forces him to reflect on his own life and, perhaps, to catch sight of the shadowy person he has imprisoned for all these years in his drunken state of mind. But will the experience of looking at the man in the mirror set him free or send him over the edge into never ending darkness?
