Directed by Joel Potrykus
United States, 2012
Drama

Synopsis

Trevor is a struggling comedian and a pyromaniac. Not only does his stage act bomb, but he bombs at everyday life, too. All he wants is a break. But instead of getting himself together or channeling his anger, he turns inward, to the loud din of his headphones and the glow of fire to ease his mind.
