Lighter chronicles the strained reinvention of an acclaimed red-neck comedian, Roman Clower as he pursues a new career in serious acting. Roman returns to his childhood home in rural South Carolina to star in a community theatre production of Hamlet. As he rehearses for his “career defining” role, Roman must ultimately face unresolved issues with his family, his friends, and himself. This dark comedy brings indie edge down south–leaving us with a fresh new story of reinvention and getting back to one’s roots.
