"“Y'all wanna hear a story about why me & this b*tch here fell out?! It's kinda long but full of suspense”

A Detroit waitress strikes up a friendship with a customer who seduces her to join a weekend partying in Florida. What at first seems like a glamorous trip seeking their fortune at a high-end strip club rapidly transforms into a 48-hour descent into criminality. A frantic, funny, and enthralling crime drama based on a legendary Twitter thread.

‘A whip-smart critique of the very modern, not especially psychologically steadying notion that our life experiences can now be repackaged for strangers' amusement as "content", rather than honestly reckoned with.’ ★★★★★ Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

‘Gasp-out-loud laughs and dazzling fantasy…Raw, boundary-pushing cinema.’ ★★★★ Laurshka Ivan-Zadeh, The Times
