Sure, Derwin Smalls is a bit of an outcast . . . a seemingly hapless oddball, socially awkward, and flailing as a mechanic in a second-rate cereal factory . . . but with a little bit of luck, he just might make it as a serial killer!
Crossing the line from fascination and fantasy to actual murderous intent is made less daunting by a daily existence that regularly pushes our peculiar protagonist to the brink. The real question is how he can possibly hope to succeed in such an unfathomable and onerous undertaking, when things never, ever, ever seem to go his way?
A Coen Brothers-style mix of comedy and drama, featuring a richly offbeat lead, a host of curious characters, and a procession of unexpected events, all wrapped-up in an undeniably dark premise.
