Ten friends tell the unbelievable true story of the New Year none of them would forget – when they hired a limousine to take them to the beach for their annual rite of passage…only to find themselves kidnapped, stripped, stranded and left for dead on a dirt road 24 hours later, fighting to survive. A true tale told by those who lived it, these ten Southern raconteurs are as practiced in spinning great yarns as they are in hard living. By combining the narration of the actual participants with feature-length re-enactment, filmmakers Gideon C. Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater marry broad subject – the greatest bar story ever told – with experimental form in this debut, full-length docu-comedy.

Directed by Gideon C. Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater, Mobile, AL
